Air Force Falcons Basketball Road Schedule in 2014-15
The Air Force Falcons are ready to soar across the country
as they take to the road and match up with some tough teams away from home this season. The Falcons have a roster brimming
with talented players, and the program is hoping that they can make a difference on the court. College basketball is always

The Falcons will take on
the San Diego State Aztecs away from home this season in what could very well be one of their toughest matchups of the year.
The Aztecs finished atop the Mountain West standings last season and are a perennial force in the conference. With head coach
Steve Fisher leading the charge each and every season, the Aztecs are never easy to take down, but that is precisely what
the Falcons will be aiming to do this year. Accomplishing that feat on the road would be a huge boost for this Falcons team.
Falcons will also head out to play New Mexico this season, and the Lobos are another team that often is one of the better
squads in the Mountain West. A game on the road against such a quality team is always a challenge, but a victory could prove
to be a big confidence boost for the Falcons if they were able to make it happen. This is just one of the great matchups facing
the Falcons away from home in 2014-15.
