Rams Football vs. Air Force Oct. 31

October 29, 2009

CSU football will play the Air Force on Saturday, Oct. 31 in a game in which the Rams will make a bid for their first win since Sept. 19.

Rams vs. Weber State on Sept. 12. CSU won 24-23.

Saturday, Oct. 31
Kickoff 2 p.m.
Hughes Stadium

The Rams will host the Air Force Academy for Hall of Fame weekend this Saturday, Oct. 31 at 2 p.m. This is game nine for the Rams. Their 2009 record is 3-5 and 0-4 in the Moutain West Championship. 

CSU will bid for its first win since Sept. 19, and first conference victory since the 2008 season finale at Wyoming, Nov. 22.

Live broadcasts

The game will be broadcast on television on The Mountain (DirecTV: Channel 616; Comcast Digital Cable: Channel 411). 

Trick-or-treat in Ram Town

CSU Athletics and Nelligan Sports Marketing have worked together to create a friendly, safe environment for kids who'd like to trick-or-treat in Ram Town before kickoff.  Several CSU sponsors will have tents in the Ram Town area and will be giving out candy and other prizes. 

Welcoming back legends 

Several legends will be back in town for Hall of Fame Weekend, including former football players Moses Moreno and Kevin Sheesley, among five Class of 2009 inductees.

Moreno in three career starts against the Air Force was 2-1, including a 27-20 upset over the No. 21 Falcons in 1995. Sheesley was the winningest wrestler in school history; he went undefreated in his junior and senior years. 

Old rivalry

CSU and the Air Force Academy renew a heated Front Range rivalry that began in 1957. CSU and Air Force have met every year since Steve Fairchild’s first season as the Rams’ quarterback, 1978. Saturday marks the 48th renewal. Fairchild was 2-0 against the Falcons as a field general (1978, 1980), and 5-4 now as a member of the CSU coaching staff.

CSU sets out to return the Ram-Falcon Trophy back to Fort Collins for the first time since Sept. 29, 2005, a 41-23 Thursday night ESPN triumph at home. The Falcons’ current three-game winning streak is their longest in the series since a seven-year run from 1983-89. From 1990-2005, CSU went 10-5 against their rivals.
