  • Air Force hasn't lost faith in RB Jacobi Owens despite fumbles

    Though Jacobi Owens coughed up the ball twice on Saturday, the Air Force coaching staff isn't ready to diagnose a full-blown case of fumbleitis. That's a good thing for Owens, as that ailment has proven fatal to running backs' careers under Troy Calhoun. "You've got to prove it to us. Ball security is the No. 1 thing you can do as a back,"...

  • A new conversation surrounds Air Force football after win over Boise State

    One game has certainly changed the conversation surrounding Air Force's football team. Even if the Falcons themselves wouldn't say it, fans did on message boards and social media.

  • Ramsey: Huge win lifts coach Troy Calhoun and his Falcons

    This Air Force football team has been shouting since August. They said they were an entirely different group of Falcons. They had waved farewell to the humiliations of 2013. They were ready for a Mountain West revenge tour. Almost nobody listened to the Falcons. Even fewer believed them. Until Saturday evening. An embattled coach and his...

  • Air Force beats mistake-prone Boise State

    Air Force’s win over Boise State was sealed in appropriate fashion, with the ball cradled by Weston Steelhammer after an interception. It was the third pick of the game for the sophomore strong safety and the seventh turnover forced by the Air Force defense.

  • Heavy underdog Air Force asking "why not us?" against Boise State

    It's the saying in the Air Force weight room. It's the Twitter hashtag. It's probably on a T-shirt somewhere. It's pretty simple: "Why not us?" The Falcons are a smart bunch. They are well-versed in history and know there is a clear answer to their rhetorical questions. Why not them? Because Boise State is the superior football program....
