Two of college football's top offenses will be on display on Wednesday when Toledo takes on Air Force in the 2011 Military Bowl from RFK Stadium at 4:30 p.m. The game, which will be televised on ESPN, is expected to be an offensive shootout between two offenses that get it done in many different ways.
Two of the country's best offenses will meet in the Military Bowl, but they couldn't contrast any more starkly. Air Force employs college football's version of a knuckleball pitcher: a triple-option attack that churns out a staggering 320.2 rushing yards per game, the second most in the nation. Meanwhile, Toledo utilizes an explosive spread offense that put up 42.2 points per game (eighth in the FBS) and can score from anywhere on the field.
