The Air Force Falcons will open the 2019 season at home against the Colgate Raiders, according to Colgate’s official website.
Air Force will host Colgate at Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Saturday, Aug. 31. The game will be the second meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.
In their first meeting back in 2013, Air Force defeated Colgate 38-13 in Colorado Springs.
Colgate is a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) school and competes in the Patriot League. Last season, Colgate finished 5-1 in conference play and claimed their ninth Patriot League championship.
Air Force’s 2019 non-conference schedule is now tentatively complete with the addition of Colgate. The Falcons are also scheduled to host Army (date TBD) and travel to Colorado (Sept. 14) and Navy (Oct. 5).
In Mountain West Conference play in 2019, Air Force is scheduled to host Fresno State, San Jose State, Utah State, and Wyoming and play at Boise State, Colorado State, Hawaii, and New Mexico.
