Calhoun hosts press conference as Air Force prepares to host UNLV in final home game
Nov. 10, 2009
This week's game is the final home game for 15 seniors. The group will be honored prior to the game. Air Force leads the overall series against UNLV, 10-4, including a 5-1 mark at home and a 5-3 road mark. The Falcons have won two straight and six of the last seven games in the series. Air Force has won three straight at home since a 34-10 UNLV win in 2001, including a 31-14 victory in 2007. The Falcons defeated UNLV, 29-28, last season in Las Vegas. Air Force and UNLV each won home games last week. The Falcons defeated service academy rival Army, 35-7, while UNLV beat Colorado State, 35-16.
Air Force is 13-4 at home over the last three seasons which is the fourth-best three-year run in school history and best since 1998-2000 when the team was 14-3. Air Force is bowl-eligible for the third straight year. This season is the first time since 2003 that Air Force has been bowl-eligible three consecutive years. If the Falcons are selected for a bowl game this season, it would mark the first time since 1990-92 the team appeared in a bowl game three straight years.
Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun discussed the game and Air Force's season at his weekly teleconference this week at the Air Force Academy.
