Summary

It's a tale of two resumes in the First Responder Bowl.

Air Force put together some good wins and lost to strong teams in Utah State, San Diego State, and Army, while Louisville beat up on the bottom of the ACC and struggled against the better teams all season long.

Louisville has the dual-threat QB in Malik Cunningham to get up and down the field and score, but Air Force has shown they have talent on both sides of the ball and can win with both defense and offense.

Our Pick

We love Air Force in the upset spot here.

Cunningham has the ability to be explosive and keep the Cardinals close, but the Falcons boast a very tough matchup. Take Air Force and enjoy the high-flyin' triple-option!

The Score: Air Force win this one, 24-20
