2011 Commander In Chief's Trophy: Air Force Poised To Retain Trophy For Second Straight Year

The Air Force Falcons can secure their second straight Commander-in-Chief's Trophy by defeating the Army Black Knights on Saturday at Falcon Stadium. The Falcons won the trophy in 2010 for the first time since 2002. That year, quarterback Chance Harridge ran for 1,228 yards and led the Falcons to an 8-5 record, including wins over Army and Navy.

However, that also marked the end of the Falcons' C-I-C Trophy win streak at six and the start of Navy's seven-year trophy streak. The Falcons can start a new streak on Saturday; otherwise, they will need to wait until Dec. 10 to see if they can retain the trophy. Should Navy win on Saturday, the trophy will be decided in the annual Army-Navy game. The Falcons would need the Black Knights to defeat the Midshipmen in order to retain the trophy. A victory from each team would give the Falcons the trophy in a three-way tie.
