Air Force's offense averaged more than 14 passes per game over the first seven contests of the season with quarterback Nate Romine taking snaps.

The Falcons threw just eight times per game in Arion Worthman's five starts to close the season - all victories.

For offensive linemen, run blocking means attacking and pass blocking generally mean withstanding the attacks from defenders. So they were happy with the change.

"Anytime we run the ball I'm happy," tackle James Rast said. "I don't care who's back there. As long as we're running the ball I'm happy."
