The Air Force football team announced their 2020 schedule Thursday.

Following an impressive 11-2 season and a Cheez-It Bowl Championship, the Falcons will kickoff their year on Sept. 5th against Duquesne at Falcon Stadium.

It is a busy opening month, which includes a Sept. 12th home showdown with Boise State and a trip to West Lafayette to take on Purdue (Sept. 19th).

"I mean the Big Ten is awesome, I wasn't recruited by the Big Ten, it's always good to get after another conference like that," senior linebacker Grant Donaldson said.

Eyeing a return to the Commander-In-Chief trophy, the Falcons host Navy on Oct. 3rd and travel to Army Nov. 7th.

Troy Calhoun's team wraps up their 12-game regular season at Utah State on Nov. 28th.

"Anything that is thrown at us no matter the order, I do not think it will matter to us," senior running back Kadin Resmberg said. "We are going to take one team at a time. We are going to give it our all in practice in preparation for that team. We are going to prove ourselves, we are going to show everyone what we are about. It doesn't matter what team it is, we are going to put in the same amount of work."
