ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Air Force running back Anthony LaCoste is coming off a career performance while his counterpart in the New Mexico backfield, Kasey Carrier, turned in a record-breaking performance when the teams met last year.
And that sets the stage for when teams that are very alike, both in record and philosophy, meet in Albuquerque on Friday night.
New Mexico (2-6, 0-4 Mountain West) uses a pistol formation to run a read-option to free Carrier or quarterback Cole Gautsche.
The Falcons (2-7, 0-5) rely on a triple option, which consistently sprung LaCoste for big gains against Army.
