Air Force beat Nevada in a high scoring affair last season in which the Falcons piled up 600 yards of total offense. The Falcons could benefit from the fact that they will face Nevada the week after its game at Hawaii. Quarterback Cody Fajardo, who passed for 2,700 yards last season, returns to lead the Nevada offense. Defensively, senior defensive tackle Jack Reynoso returns for the pack.
