Air Force will play a pair of Friday football games, as the Mountain West announced its national package of Friday games for the 2014 season.

The Falcons will play at San Diego State at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 21 and will host Colorado State at 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 28 - the day after Thanksgiving. Each game was originally scheduled for the following day before shifting for television.

Both games are currently scheduled for the CBS Sports Network, which would not provide Air Force with a national television bonus under the conference structure.

The Falcons twice played on Friday during the 2013 season, in losses at Boise State and New Mexico.

Coach Troy Calhoun has said he prefers not to play on Fridays, as he feels it should be preserved for high school games. But as a member of a conference, the Falcons' scheduling is not under the team's control.

Times for Air Force's other conference games have not been set, so there is a chance some could be moved to Thursday or Saturday nights. The preference for the Falcons, and what seems to be a vocal majority of their fan base, is to keep as many games as possible on Saturday afternoon.
