Air Force Falcons – NCAAF History

The Air Force Falcons are a Division I FBS Football team based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Initially founded in 1955, Air Force has an overall record of 422–340–13. While their service academy counterparts Army and Navy have fielded football teams going back to the late 19th Century, the Air Force Academy based in Colorado is a relatively-newer football program, which also has a “Junior Varsity” team, something that most colleges used to have for football and basketball during the early 20th Century. All in all, it had largely phased out because, over time, those programs eventually allowed freshman players to start with the “Varsity” team.

Prolific 80s Decade

Since 1984, the Falcons team stats have ranked amongst the nation’s Top Ten in Rushing 19 times over 21 years. Their most successful season came in 1985, when the Falcons came within one win of playing for a national championship. They recorded ten straight wins, clinching their first ever Western Athletic Conference championship, and as the #2 ranked team in the nation, lost to Brigham Young University in a tough 28-21 clash. They wrapped up the year with a 24-16 victory over Texas in the Bluebonnet Bowl. Air Force has made 28 bowl game appearances, with an overall record of 14-13-1. The Falcons have reached at least one bowl game in each of the last eight decades that the program has existed.

Air Force is known for running the triple option offense, which is a run-heavy attack that also utilizes a lot of laterals and short passes.
