And I’m not talking about the upcoming clash with Army.
Air Force can walk away satisfied from its football season if it defeats Brigham Young on Nov. 21. I know that’s a long ways off, but also know a win over BYU would bring a level of satisfaction that can’t be found with wins over Army, UNLV or Colorado State.
And the Cougars are vulnerable. They’ve gotten hammered by Florida State and TCU. They were on the ropes last season at Air Force.
Yes, BYU will be supported by a throng of fans.
But AFA should be more hungry. In their four toughest games of this season, the Falcons fought nobly …
And walked away as losers.
Challenge No. 5 awaits.
And that challenge could define this season.
