Denver leads the all-time series with Air Force 32-3. Anything less than a sweep will be .... disappointing.

Pretty good showing for Mayfield.

Check out Zucker dropping bombs on this guy for checking his teammate from behind. Zucks is the man.

Air Force is no push over, be prepared to be disappointed. My memory is not great but believe they have made the playoffs and not just stunned some teams but beat them quite soundly. Their coach gets more out of a player than most of the highly ranked teams in the nation. Should be a great series, and we (colorado residents)finally get one on the tube. Not a fan of either team just married to one, du alum.

Playing AFA is no walk in the park. Never has been, never will be. Those kids play their asses off and never take a shift off. It's always a battle. That said, DU has more talent and should win both these games.

Good scrap for Mayfield. I wish we had gotten one more year with him at DU. I hope he finds his way to the NHL soon.
