Air Force will travel to Purdue in the 2020 football season.

The meeting will come on Sept. 19, 2020, according to an announcement from Falcons athletic director Jim Knowlton.

This will be the program’s 20th meeting with a Big Ten school.

“We look forward to the opportunity to play a great football program, yet also the association with a tremendous world class university in Purdue,” Air Force coach Troy Calhoun said. 

Air Force is 5-12-2 all-time against the Big Ten, with recent losses coming at Michigan in 2017 and 2012 and at Michigan State in 2015. The last victory came in 2003 at Northwestern.

The Falcons have Purdue all-time leading receiver Taylor Stubblefield on staff as receivers coach.

The Boilermakers, who play in West Lafayette, Ind., went 6-6 this season, including a 4-5 mark in the Big Ten. They will face Arizona in the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 27.
