College Football Schedule 2012: Air Force, Navy meet in rivalry game

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Air Force, Navy meet in first game of Commander in Chief series

It's the first Saturday in October, which traditionally means it's time for Air Force vs. Navy in the first game to determine the winner of the Commander in Chief Trophy. The trophy is given to the winner of each year's three-way series between the Falcons, Midshipmen and Army.

Air Force (2-2) is looking to win its third Commander in Chief Trophy in a row and 19th overall, more than either of the other two schools. Air Force plays at Army on Nov. 3.

The Falcons opened as a 7 1/2-point favorite and is now an even bigger favorite at 9.5. They'll battle Navy in chilly conditions, with temperatures in the 20s-30s and perhaps icy conditions expected.

Air Force is coming off a 42-21 win over struggling Colorado State, which hosts Fresno State on Saturday. The Rams (1-4, 0-1 Mountain West) find themselves at 13-point underdogs at home to the Bulldogs (3-2, 1-0) and are hoping to not only right the ship but get their first conference win of the season.

Here's a rundown of this week's local college football schedule:

Navy at Air Force, 10:31 a.m., Saturday, CBS

Fresno State at Colorado State, 6 p.m. Saturday

Colorado and Denver: Open weeks
