Saturday's UNLV - Air Force game at Falcon Stadium won't be as intense as last week's Army game but it may be more emotional. 15 Air Force seniors will say farewell to Falcon Stadium on Saturday.
Since the UNLV game is the final home game of the season for Air Force those 15 seniors will be honored prior to kickoff. All will be introduced individually prior to kickoff. Coach Troy Calhoun will greet them as they run onto the field and their parents will be there.
Senior guard Nick Charles says, " It's going to be tough to say goodbye to the stadium that's done so much and taught us so much to this point in time. I can't wait for Saturday. It's going to be great."
"It will definitely get to me," said senior linebacker Justin Moore. " The last chance to play in this stadium is obviously a big deal but there's bigger things out there and the number one thing on my mind is winning the game."
Senior linebacker John Falgout is aware his football career at Air Force is close to over. "We've got eight quarters left to make the most of our opportunity," said Falgout. "These last four at Falcon Stadium for us will be a real special occasion."
Kickoff is at 4:00 p.m. Saturday. Air Force is favored by 17. The Falcons close out the regular season a week from Saturday at BYU.
