Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the Air Force Falcons are collegiate athletic program that represents the U.S. Air Force Academy. Air Force’s intercollegiate program, which is a member of the Mountain West Conference, has 17 men’s and 10 women’s teams. Men’s teams include football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, cross-country, fencing, golf, gymnastics, indoor and outdoor track, lacrosse, rifle, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, water polo and wrestling. Women’s teams include basketball, cross-country, fencing, gymnastics, indoor and outdoor track, swimming and diving, soccer, tennis and volleyball. Each year, Air Force competes with Army and Navy for the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy, which is awarded to the academy that defeats the others in football.
While Air Force boasts a variety of athletic programs, its football program is its most well-known program. Given the physical restrictions that the military service puts on cadets, Air Force’s football program is based on speed and technical execution rather than size and strength. Air Force is known for running a triple-option offense with much success. Since 1984, Air Force has ranked among the nation’s Top 10 rushing teams 19 times in 21 years. During 2014, Air Force unleashed its triple option attack on the Mountain West Conference and finished with a 10-3 record, which marked Air Force’s first double digit win season since 1998. Air Force’s most successful football season occurred in 1985 when the team was one win away from playing for the national championship. Air Force won ten straight games to open the season, but lost to BYU, which ended their national championship hopes. Air Force finished the 1985 season with a 12-1 record.
Air Force’s basketball and hockey programs have also been very successful. Air Force won the Mountain West Conference regular season championship in 2004 and qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2006 while making the Final Four of the National Invitational Tournament in 2007. Air Force’s ice hockey program won three straight Atlantic Hockey conference tournaments from 2007-2009 and made three straight appearances in the NCAA Division I hockey tournament. Air Force’s 2007 appearance in the NCAA tournament was the first ever by a service academy. In the 2009 NCAA Tournament, Air Force barely missed going to the Frozen Four after losing to Vermont 3-2 in double overtime.
Air Force’s team mascot is a falcon named ‘Mach 1’, which was the name of the first falcon presented to the Air Force Academy in 1955.
