Air Force releases football schedule, begins conference season on the road

The Mountain West released its full football schedule on Thursday. Air Force already knew its opponents and locations, but the schedule gives the order of those games (specific days can change as television networks take games and can move them to Thursdays and Fridays).

The primary item of note is that the Falcons largely miss the potential for terrible weather in its road schedule. They hit Wyoming on Sept. 6 and the two conference road games in November will be played at San Diego State and UNLV.

Also, the Falcons have a standing request with the Mountain West to not play the week of Thanksgiving, and that has again been ignored as the Falcons will host Colorado State two days after the holiday on Nov. 29.

Air Force’s open dates are Sept. 20 and Oct. 25, which breaks the schedule as perfectly as possible with three games before the first bye, four games between the two and four games following the second.
