It's Service Academy week for Air Force football. The 5-4 Falcons host 3-5 Army Saturday.
"I think Army and Navy are special for us," said Air Force linebacker John Falgout. "The fact that they're our Service Academy rivals means they mean a little more for us than the regular out of conference game."
Air Force already lost to Navy, so there is no Commander-In-Chiefs Trophy on the line.
"If you're not first, you're last: Ricky Bobby," said Air Force cornerback Reggie Rembert.
And there's a little motivation for the Falcons. The ESPN GameDay crew will be at the Academy this weekend and Lee Corso is not the most popular guy around the Falcons locker room.
"Every time I've heard Corso talking he's always saying, ‘BYU's going to get an easy win against air force,'" said Rembert. "He's not exactly my favorite out of the three."
With a sixth win, Air Force will be bowl eligible for a third year in a row.
"For us it's more looking like a bowl game type scenario," said Air Force wide receiver Kyle Halderman. "To get that sixth win, be bowl eligible."
Air Force and Army kickoff Saturday at 1:30 at Falcon Stadium.
