Air Force To Try To Play Army, Navy In Football, Other Sports
There is some hope for at least Mountain West team this fall.
Commander-in-Chief trophy might happen
The Mountain West football season has officially been canceled but that does not mean that every team is not going to try to play this fall. Air Force said that it will attempt to play Army and Navy in all sports this fall.
Falcons athletic director sent out a tweet saying playing the other Armed Forces is an option they are closely looking at.
Pine’s main reasoning behind possibly playing these teams is because of the strict guidelines and testing that goes within Army, Navy, and Air Force.
“I’m pleased that Air Force will have the opportunity to continue to explore competitions against Army and Navy if conditions allow as we have similar physical missions across the service academies.”
The Commander-In-Chief trophy is a prestigious award given out to the best football team among these universities.
If these games do happen it would be a ray of sunshine in what is a dark cloud over college football.
