  • Air Force's depth shows with Jordan Pierce ready to step in at LB for Joey Nichol

    Linebacker Jordan Pierce had the look of someone who had been there before when he entered the game in place of the injured Joey Nichol on Saturday for Air Force. It's no wonder. He has, in fact, been there before. Pierce, who moved up the depth chart and is the likely starter this week against Wyoming if Nichol remains sidelined with a groin...

  • Ramsey: Jacobi Owens shakes gloom from Air Force football program

    Hope. That's what Jacobi Owens delivered to Air Force's football program Saturday while annihilating the Nicholls State Colonels. He rushed for 233 yards on 23 carries, a first down waiting to happen every time he touched the ball. He showed power. He showed elusiveness. He showed, most importantly, the ability to bust outside. "No matter...

  • Air Force safety Weston Steelhammer cracks down on opponent from his home state

    Weston Steelhammer actually took the brunt of the collision on Saturday's biggest play. The Air Force sophomore flew around the blind side on a safety blitz and took a running start at Nicholls State's 6-foot, 215-pound quarterback Jalen Henderson. The hit provided a jolt to Henderson, but it didn't knock him down. It did, however, force him...

  • Jacobi Owens busts out for 233 yards in his debut as Air Force rolls

  • Despite familiar faces, Air Force football starts a new era

    A new age in Air Force football starts Saturday. At least that's the plan. With new coordinators, new philosophies and a new energy, the team will feature many of the same players but figures to be almost unrecognizable from the squad that finished with the program's worst record a year ago. The Falcons host Nicholls State, an FCS opponent,...

  • Air Force men's soccer ties Navy, women lose

    The Air Force women’s soccer team suffered a painful lesson on Friday night. Do not let a team you are dominating hang around.

The Air Force men (0-0-1) also saw some good scoring...

  • Tigers in Europe, AFA commit, Eric Rud, NCHC officials award, Carlo, Howe

  • Change is in the cushion for Air Force cornerbacks

    Need any more proof that Air Force has changed its defensive philosophy? Just look at the personnel. In as a starter is Jordan Mays, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound converted safety who is perhaps the strongest defensive back on the roster. Out, for now, is Gavin McHenry, a swift track standout who started all 12 games last year. In short, muscle won...
