Air Force Falcons season preview

It was a rough year for head coach Troy Calhoun and his Air Force squad in 2013.

Air Force football closes the book on last season as spring practice begins

Events that occurred between Aug. 31 and Nov. 30 were a taboo subject as Air Force began spring football practice on Wednesday. "It's 2014," safety Christian Spears said.
