Coming off their first win of the year on Saturday, the Air Force Falcons have turned their attention to the Utah Utes. Its the first game on the road, and the first conference game for head coach Troy Calhoun.

Utah will take the field pretty banged up. Starting quarterback Brian Johnson separated his shoulder in last Thursday's loss to Oregon State. Johnson is expected to be out 3 to 5 weeks.

The Utes starting running back Matt Asiata, also got hurt in that game, he broke his leg and is out for the year.

Its a big opportunity for Air Force, to take advantage of an injured team on the road. However Coach Calhoun has warned his team that backup quarterback Tommy Grady, taking over for Brian Johnson is extremely talented and could cause problems for the Falcons.

Grady is a 6'7 senior and is a transfer from Oklahoma. He's received plenty of playing time during his college career and his size and speed could present problems for the Falcon defense.
