This afternoon in snowy Falcon Stadium, Air Force ended a downbeat season on an upbeat note by blasting Colorado State, 47-17, in a Mountain West Conference game between Front Range Rivals. The Falcons used a touchdown with four seconds remaining in the first half to seize a, 21-17, halftime lead and begin an onslaught of thirty-three unanswered points to beat the Rams for the first time since 2000.

The final weekend of MWC play will have slightly less drama than was anticipated because of BYU's upset loss at the hands of New Mexico last Saturday. While Utah has already clinched a second straight conference title the game's outcome may carry financial repercussions for each team in the league.

The Air Force Falcons and Colorado State Rams meet in the 2004 season finale for each team. Ironically, both squads will finish with losing records for the first time since 1993. From that year to the present it's no coincidence that CSU has dominated AFA.

In his twenty-first season as AFA's head coach, Fisher DeBerry's record through 254 games stands at 160-93-1(.635) overall; 75-59-1(.559) on the road or at neutral sites and 85-34(.714) in home games. A greater number of these games have been played on the road or at neutral sites--135 or 53.1%--while 119 or 46.9% have been played as home games.

It took until the eleventh week of the season to get here, but it finally arrives this weekend. For the first time in 2004, each of the members of the MWC will be in action against one another. CSU, UNLV and SDS are out of the race for bowl bids. AFA, New Mexico and Wyoming will try to strengthen their cases for berths to postseason play. BYU and Utah play one last time before meeting next week in Salt Lake City in the game that should crown this year's MWC champion.

Three, the perfect number? Trios, triangles, and Stooges all revel in the notion of being part of a triad, a trinity, a troika or triumvirate. Three of a kind has won many a poker bluff. There are three primary colors in the spectrum. Three Rs from your childhood school days. Even the local hustler trying to separate you from your paycheck via his sleight of hand with a three card monte. There's just no escaping the number three and the Falcons certainly hope that's the case.
