Air Force is 3-4, the first time in coach Troy Calhoun’s time as Falcons coach that one of his teams has a losing record. Nonetheless, Air Force will be back on national network television on Nov. 5, as CBS picked up the Falcons’ home game against Army, which is 2-5, for its 1:30 p.m. Mountain time slot.
The game was scheduled to be on Versus at the same time, but CBS had an opening because the clash between LSU and Alabama was moved to prime time. CBS had good luck with Air Force’s first service academy rivalry game this season, as it broadcast the Falcons’ thrilling 35-34 win at Navy on Oct. 1. The Falcons were also on NBC against Notre Dame a week later.
