Dave Toller - Meeks_Demont'e(1).jpg

In a performance as complete as Air Force's 31-7 dismantling of Utah State, it’s difficult to pinpoint any individuals.

Air Force’s offensive line dealt with injuries and shifting personnel to pave the way for 448 rushing yards; and the Falcons’ backs found their way into those holes and created a little extra.

Defensively, it took a team effort to force a powerful Utah State offense into three-and-outs on six of nine possessions.

But if somebody has to be singled out, let’s go with Demonte Meeks, the linebacker who managed eight tackles when Air Force’s defense as a whole made just 31 stops against an offense it largely kept off the field. Meeks’ performance included four solo stops and half a sack for a 4-yard loss.

“Stuff’s starting to slow down a lot for me,” said Meeks, who has led Air Force in tackles in four of the past five weeks.
