  • Spectacular finish gives Air Force last-second win over No. 21 Colorado State

    Updated: Sat, Nov 29, 2014

    It took a stop, a catch and a kick - all in the final 44 seconds - to give Air Force its most spectacular victory in years. To single out one play would be folly, as each was allowed only because the one before, and none would have mattered without the one that followed. "It's as...

  • Kicker Conant continues to be a godsend for Air Force

    Updated: Fri, Nov 28, 2014

    Mike Thiessen looks around the Pikes Peak region and sees a lot of military personnel. Perhaps about 4,000 of them could arrive in uniform at Falcon Stadium on Friday, he suggested. Thiessen's plan would lessen the anticipated awkwardness as the cadet section will be empty against...
