It didn’t the Falcons long to get last weeks loss at Wyoming out of their system. Air Force tuned up Nevada in a route Friday night, scoring early and often. Nevada is clearly a team still forming their identity. Troy Calhoun’s squad expected to be competing for a Mountain Division Title, but created a lot of questions after last weeks performance.
Well, what a difference a week makes. With the same key players missing from their lineup this week, Air Force showed no signs of suffering for lack of depth. The run game was in full force, and Ben Brittain tacked on an 80 yard touchdown bomb for good measure.

Matthew Dapore continues to quietly kick as good as anyone in the Conference, hitting from 50+ yet again. A clearly motivated team, Air Force was determined to regain form. Offense, defense and special teams were all contributors in an effort that overwhelmed the Wolf Pack. Back to form, the rushing attack went for 461 as the offense racked up over 500 yards.
With a Conference victory in their bank now, the Falcons turn their attention to Navy. Their rivals from Annapolis come to Colorado Springs on Saturday, October 1st, giving Air Force a full week to recover and prepare. This will mark the first game in the round robin battle with Army and Navy for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy.
