The Air Force Falcons have added the Bucknell Bison to their 2025 football schedule, according to a release from the school on Thursday.

Air Force will host Bucknell at Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Saturday, Aug. 30, 2025. The game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.

Bucknell is a member of the Patriot League in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Bison are 0-5 overall and 0-2 in Patriot League action so far this season.
