Here are the scenarios for Air Force to be eliminated:
-Loss vs. CC and Utah State win or Tie. (Utah State holds second tiebreaker of goal differential in MW contests).
- Air Force has never reached the MW Championship since the six-team format began. The Falcons last MW Championship appearance was in 2005.
