Another week, another Air Force football cancellation

The Falcons have an unexpected Thanksgiving off due to COVID-19 issues at Colorado State.

I started out writing a game preview this week — seriously, I was about 300 words into it when I saw this dreaded tweet:

So, uhh... I guess this means no Turkey Day game for the Falcons after all. It’s unfortunate, but we’re seeing more and more games cancelled each week as the season rolls on. On the bright side, this week’s mishap isn’t due to Air Force cases. Larimer County officials cited an increasing trend of positive COVID-19 cases in the Colorado State program.

Thursday’s game is being declared a no-contest, and it will not be made up.

We don’t really have too many more details at the moment, but the Mountain West appears to be working with the Falcons to find an alternative game for this weekend.

If there was ever a time to get the Black Knights on the schedule, it’s now. Jeff Monken won’t have to worry about playing too close to the Navy game, and it puts a Commander-in-Chief’s trophy back on the table.

For now, we’ll just have to wait and see. Be sure to check back for more details as we have them.

Currently, Air Force won’t play again until Dec. 3 at Utah State. The Falcons are 2-2 on the season.
