A pair of difficult road trips will surround Thanksgiving for the Air Force basketball team later this year.

The Falcons will travel to Colorado on Nov. 25 and to Texas Tech on Nov. 30.

"Colorado, eat some turkey, then the Red Raiders," Air Force coach Dave Pilipovich said of a schedule that hasn't yet been completed.

That week, with school not in session at the academy, will come close to simulating a typical week in the Mountain West. The game at Texas Tech will also allow a pair of seniors - Justin Hammonds and Max Yon - to return to their home state.

"It's not really close to home, but at least it's in the state," Pilipovich said.

UC Davis, Arkansas Pine Bluff and Nebraska-Omaha will come to Clune Arena this season and Pilipovich said he is in talks with other potential major opponents. The difficulty has been finding anyone willing to come to Air Force.

The game at Colorado completes a past contract. The schools have verbally agreed to a four-year deal that would begin the next season, but it has not yet been signed.

The deal would begin with a game in Boulder, putting the Falcons there for two consecutive seasons. That would also mean Buffaloes junior-to-be Josh Scott, a Lewis-Palmer graduate, would not play another game in the Pikes Peak region.

Wesley Gordon, a Sierra graduate and Buffaloes sophomore-to-be, would play at Air Force as a senior.

The Falcons went 12-18 this past season. They return four starters, losing only transferring point guard Tre' Coggins.
