Roberts steps up to lead the Falcons

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun felt good about his quarterback depth coming into the season. It took just two games to put that depth to the test.

Luckily for the Falcons, Karson Roberts passed.

"It's unfortunate when someone goes down with injury, but that's just the way it goes and the next guy needs to be prepared to step up," said Roberts, the former backup signal caller. "I was ready to play, and I just went out there and played my best each game."

Going to Texas

Growing up in Southern California, we were afforded a near embarrassment of riches in sports, from the youth level to professionals.

Difficult Task for Falcons, Bears

By Troy Phillips, armedforcesbowl.com

It would be difficult to top the final six minutes of last year's Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl on that messy day at Amon Carter Stadium. But it would make sense.

Air Force (8-5) and California (7-5) will have history in such matters when they meet December 29 at 1 p.m. in the 13th Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl at TCU.

Both teams' coaches spent Tuesday at the massive Lockheed Martin Aeronautics division complex, meeting with local media for the bowl's first news conference since the matchup was announced December 6.
