Air Force and Wyoming will kick off at 8:15 p.m. on Sept. 21 at Falcon Stadium in a game that will be televised on ESPNU.
If you’re a fan of Saturday afternoon football and a fan of the Falcons, you’re out of luck for the foreseeable future. Of Air Force’s remaining 10 games, six start after 5 p.m. and another, at Navy, kicks off at 9:30 a.m. (Mountain Time). Only the home game against Notre Dame, with its 3 p.m. kickoff, is scheduled for a Saturday afternoon. Two other games – Army and Colorado State – are still awaiting game times.
Of those 10 remaining games, two will be played on Thursdays and two more on Fridays, starting with this Friday’s game at Boise State.
In terms of scheduling, it will certainly be a strange season from here on out.
Here’s the full press release from the academy:
