Many articles have been written in Denver papers regarding a decline in Air Force’s football attendance in recent seasons. Starting 2017 at home vs. VMI and 2018 at home vs. Stony Brook will likely aid the win column, but neither is likely to put bodies in seats.

Well this is an FBS vs FCS game that makes sense. Air Force/Army/Navy should be playing The Citadel/VMI on a more frequent basis for the fan bases.
The Citadel pretty much OWNED both Army and Navy for a short spell in the late 80s-early 90s. Navy actually played AT The Citadel, and lost, in 1988. I remember that game.
Those days are looooong gone,while I think The Citadel and VMI could beat Army on any given year,beating AFA or Navy would have to be considered a upset.
But glad to see this game happen….
I will continue to have trouble sleeping until the entire FBS schedule is announced. Did the AD’s for Miami-FL, UNLV, Akron and Coastal Carolina forget they have another game to announce?
There are 15+ FCS programs yet to have a FBS opponent on their 2017 schedule.
And neither of those four FBS programs have FCS schools on their schedules yet, so they could still schedule an FCS team.
unconfirmed: Stony Brook @ USAFA, 9/1/18.
Good to see a USAFA football game in Fla…
Well expect lots of elementary and middle schools in the area to be in attendance for this one
Great! Now let’s move the actual Cotton Bowl game back to Fair Park.
I vote bringing Texas Jam and the Crossroads Guitar Fest back to the Cotton Bowl.
This is cool. My friend went to the Army La Tech game a few years back when they did this during the fair. Will this game be added to the neutral site game thread?
Yes, thanks for the reminder.
I’ve been waiting for a long time for this to happen!! I wouldn’t mind seeing Air Force in the Pac-12 and as an end-of-season game to Colorado. Can we make this an annual game?!?
