Air Force opens each football season against Football Championship Subdivision opponents, once known more simply as 1-AA. FBS is a step down from Division I. This FBS habit, a bad one, extends Air Force’s summer vacation by a week each season. Reality – and Utah State – arrive at Falcon Stadium next Saturday.
The Falcons have defeated their last seven FBS opponents by a combined score of 361-93.
Another beatdown is expected for Saturday when Colgate, of the FBS, invades Falcon Stadium. Colgate has a strong chance to score points, but the visitors’ defense will not be able to stop Air Force’s tricky option attack. Expect the Falcons to win by three touchdowns. At least.
I’m not a fan of the Air Force-FBS series. I have not met a fan of the FBS series, and that includes various members of the Air Force athletic staff.
Wait. There is one fan of Air Force playing tomato cans:
Coach Troy Calhoun.
