This is Air Force's second consecutive game on broadcast television which is a first for the program as the Falcons travel on the road to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. This is the first matchup between the two schools since 2007 when Air Force defeated Notre Dame 41-24, also on the road. That Air Force win happened to be the most lopsided loss Notre Dame suffered when going up against a service academy since a 41-7 loss to Navy in 1948. That 2007 win was also the first season for current Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun.
Game date, time: 1:30 p.m. MT, Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011
Location: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Ind.
Spread: Notre Dame is favored by 17 points.
