Future Non-Conference Games: Air Force


With the timeline now finalized for Fresno State and Nevada waiting an extra year in the WAC, questions about scheduling have now arrived for a number of schools with the MWC and WAC schools now requiring 5 non-conference games. I went to and dug up tons of little nuggets as far as future non-conference games go... I'll list those here so that the people (myself included) who did not know about these games can find out. I'll simply go through the important non-conference games for the future years for MWC teams (Including Utah and BYU). There will be a post for each team on every Tuesday and Thursday and the posts will be in no specific order. If you want to find out which school's post is for that day, then follow us on Twitter for the information on when the post will be. Also note that these posts were written on Friday-Tuesday of the last week of October, so if the posts seem about a week or two old, that’s because they are.

Air Force

2011 Schedule - South Dakota, @Navy, @Notre Dame, Army

Air Force still has a spot left on the independent littered schedule. It will be interesting to see if Air Force can use the Notre Dame game, which is in early October by the way, to slingshot its way into the polls as that is entirely possible. Maybe Air Force can schedule another BCS opponent to bump their SOS up.


2012 Schedule - Idaho State, Navy, Army, (FBS Team)

For whatever reason, Air Force's 2012 schedule includes the non-conference game listed as "TBA (FBS Team)" I'm  not sure what that is, but it looks like Air Force will be dropping FBS Team from their schedule with the probability of only 3 non-conference games in 2012. Another note is that the Army game is being played in Yankee Stadium, should get some publicity for that.


2013 Schedule - Colgate, @Navy, Army

Not much to analyze - just the normal FCS Team and two rivals.


Other Non-Conference games -

2014 - Navy, @Army

2015 - Oklahoma State, @Cincinatti, @Navy, Army

2016 - @Oklahoma State, Navy, @Army

2017 - Cincinatti, Army, @Navy

2018 - @Army, Navy

2019 - Army, @Navy

2020 - @Army, Navy

2021 - Army, @Navy


Bits on the 2014+ Games -

Interesting that they were able to schedule home and homes with Oklahoma State and Cincinatti, that will definitely come in handy for those seasons in the non-conference. The bad thing is that Cincinatti seems to be spiraling downward with a horrible record this year and Oklahoma State is only occasionally a Top 25 team. It will be interesting to see how good they are by the time the games come up.
