    Air Force suffered one of the worst losses in recent program history last week in a 38-35 loss to UNLV.

    Air Force Academy is pounding CSU, 21-0, at the end of the 1st quarter at Falcon Stadium. The Falcons are trying to rebound from last week’s 38-35 loss to UNLV.r

    Jon Lee opened the scoring with a 7-yard run after Cody Getz ran 52 yards to set up the score. The Falcons pushed the lead to 14-0 on a 53-yard pass from Connor Dietz to Drew Coleman. Ty MacArthur closed the first quarter scoring with a 4-yard run.

  • CSU-Air Force pregame: Will this one be a real contest?

    Sat, September 29, 2012 by David Ramsey with 5 comments

    While driving to the game today, I heard Air Force radio play-by-play man Jim Arthur say,  “It’s always a good time when Air Force and CSU get together.”

    Hate to disagree, Jim, but it hasn’t been a good time for awhile. Air Force has defeated CSU six straight times, with the average margin of victory in the past five games at 21.8 points.

    Is CSU – finally – ready to deliver a genuine challenge to the Falcons?



  • Kons goes through light workouts in practice

    Senior offensive tackle Jason Kons, who’s recovering from mono, went through light workouts at Wednesday’s practice.

    Coach Troy Calhoun hinted Kons has a chance to  return to the Falcons for the Oct. 13 trip to Wyoming. Calhoun had previously targeted Kons return for Oct. 20 vs. New Mexico.


  • Vegas beats Calhoun and company – the low point?

    Mon, September 24, 2012 by David Ramsey with 15 comments

    I’m saying Saturday’s 38-35 loss to UNLV is Air Force’s worst loss since, well, the last time the Falcons lost to UNLV in 2006.

    The games, when you think about it, are similar. In both games, Air Force’s offense delivered a solid game. In both games, the Falcons defense was basically defenseless.

    Was Saturday the worst loss of the Troy Calhoun era, which started in 2007? Let me know what you think.

  • Kons out for month with mono

    Air Force offensive tackle Jason Kons is out, to use Troy Calhoun’s words, “for a month.” He’s suffering from mono.

    This is a big loss. Kons is one of Air Force’s best players. I’d argue he is Air Force’s best player.

  • End of 3rd quarter: UNLV 31, Air Force 28

    UNLV’s Rebels stunned Air Force with two long third-quarter scoring drives to take a 31-28 lead.

    Air Force’s five-game winning streak over the Rebels is in peril.

  • End of 1st half: Air Force 28, UNLV 17

    Sat, September 22, 2012 by David Ramsey with 2 comments

    Air Force’s offense has carried the Falcons to a 28-17 halftime lead over UNLV at Sam Boyd Stadium.

    UNLV had cut the lead to 21-17 with 30 seconds left in the half, but Air Force stunned the Rebels, and the crowd, with a two-play 65-yard scoring drive. The big play of the drive was a 57-yard pass from Connor Dietz to Ty MacArthur, who eluded three UNLV tacklers. Dietz scored on the next play. The drive traveled 65 yards and took only 21 seconds.
