The Air Force Falcons have added the Abilene Christian Wildcats to their 2014 football schedule, ACU athletic director Jared Mosely has announced.
Air Force will host Abilene Christian at Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs on Aug. 30, 2014. The game will be the season opener and first ever meeting between the two schools.
Abilene Christian is moving up to the Football Championship Subdivision from Division II, and will be counted as an FCS program for scheduling purposes beginning with the 2014 season. ACU will be a member of the Southland Conference.
The addition of ACU tentatively completes Air Force’s 2014 non-conference football schedule. The Falcons are also slated to travel to Georgia State on Sept. 13, host Navy on Oct. 4, and travel to Army on Nov. 1.
Other than a home game against Georgia State on Sept. 10, 2016, Air Force only has future games scheduled against Army and Navy after 2014.
Abilene Christian also has future football games scheduled against FBS teams New Mexico State (Oct. 26, 2013), Troy (Sept. 13, 2014) and Fresno State (Sept. 5, 2015).
