BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Boise State University head coach Chris Petersen says his Broncos must stick to their fundamentals to beat a disciplined Air Force Academy when the teams meet Friday after a short week of practice.
It might be tempting for Petersen to borrow from Utah State's game plan, after the Aggies dismantled Air Force on Saturday, 52-20.
But Petersen, coming off a 63-14 victory over University of Tennessee Martin, said Monday he's not looking to mimic Utah State's playbook.
For one, with four days to practice, he says there's no window to copy tactics Utah State might have found successful against the Falcons.
Test-driving new schemes on short weeks is a recipe for trouble, Petersen says.
And he's convinced Air Force is a better team than reflected by Utah State's lopsided rout.
