Air Force and Cincinnati will likely cancel their 2015 and 2017 home-and-home football series, according to Air Force senior associate athletic director Rick Trego.
Trego told Frank Schwab of Gazette.com that Cincinnati approached them about canceling the series and “that is probably the direction we will go.”
Yesterday, Cincinnati associate director of athletics Doug Mosley told us via email that there have been “discussions about possible changes to the series.” Since the cancellation is not yet official, Mosley was likely not able to make a definitive statement on the series.
The two schools were set to meet in Cincinnati on Sept. 12, 2015 and in Colorado Springs on Sept. 2, 2017. The only other time they have played was way back in 1961.
If the cancellation does occur, Air Force will only have Army and Navy on their future schedules from 2014 forward. Their 2013 non-conference schedule includes Colgate (Aug. 31), at Navy (Oct. 5), Notre Dame (Oct. 26) and Army (Nov. 2).
Cincinnati’s future non-conference schedule is not as bare. The Bearcats currently have four games slated for 2013 and 2014 and three in 2015 if you don’t count Air Force.
