COMMENTS

Air Force won a close one last season at Wyoming in a game that saw some ugly words hurled at Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun following the contest. The Cowboys return a good number of players to a team that showed improvement as the 2012 season progressed. All-America quarterback Brett Smith returns as well as senior wide receiver Robert Herron who made 31 catches for 657 and eight touchdowns a year ago.
