In 2013, Colorado Springs will be the host to one of the most prestigious programs in college football. On Tuesday it was announced that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will travel west to face the Air Force Falcons at Falcon Stadium during the 2013 season. Senior associate athletic director Jim Trego told The Gazette that the game against the Irish is going to take place in late September, and that the schools initially discussed holding the game at Sports Authority Field in Denver before nixing that idea.
The Falcons join a loaded 2013 schedule for the Irish, which at the moment is slated to include the Oklahoma Sooners, USC Trojans, Michigan Wolverines, BYU Cougars and Stanford Cardinals amongst others. For the time being, Air Force has only three other games slated for next season, vs. the Navy Midshipmen, Army Black Knights and Colgate Raiders.
