The Falcons are a member of the NCAA FBS Mountain West Conference and play their home games at Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs. The Falcons are currently coached by Troy Calhoun.

History[edit | edit source]

The Falcons are not only recognized by the lightning bolt on the side of their helmets, but their traditional option attack. Air Force is one of the premier rushing teams in the nation. Since Fisher DeBerry took over as Falcons head coach in 1984, they have ranked among the nation's top 10 in rushing 19 times in 21 years. The Air Force football team has enjoyed success not only on the field but also in the classroom. In 49 years of Air Force football, there have been 39 Academic All-Americans.[2]

The 1985 season[edit | edit source]

Template:Rellink 1985 was the most successful season in Air Force football history. Under second-year coach Fisher DeBerry, the Falcons came within one win of playing for the national championship. They recorded 10 straight wins to start the season, climbed the polls to #2 in the nation, but lost to BYU 28–21 in the penultimate game of the regular season. Air Force rebounded with a bowl game win over the Texas Longhorns in the Bluebonnet Bowl and finished with a 12–1 record as the #5 ranked team in the nation.
