A 32-mph wind just might curtail passing in the Army-Air Force game on Saturday.
Wait, the two service academies don't pass much anyway. The two teams average a combined 11 passes a game. Contrast that to Washington State, which throws it 54.6 times a game.
The gusts also impact the flyovers by requiring some plane changes. Looks like the U-2 Dragon Lady is a no-go. But the A-10 Thunderbolt II and the B-1 Lancer are still cleared for takeoff.
32 mph wind for Army-Air Force. Expect fewer passes. Wait, they don't pass much anyway ... pic.twitter.com/yZaL4D1XMW

The wind was blowing so intensely the goal posts were swaying. It won't be easy conditions for Army kicker Blake Wilson or Air Force's Luke Strebel. Speaking of Strebel, he has 240 career points and needs 13 more break the school's all-time scoring mark shared by quarterbacks Beau Morgan (1994-96) and Dee Dowis (1986-89).
