USAF Astronaut watches from space as USAF notches its first 10-win season in almost 20 yrs

Today, 09:08 AM

AF, who was ranked #33 in the Coaches Poll and #36 in the AP Poll, won the Potato Bowl 38-24 over Western Michigan

First 10-win season for Air Force since 1998 and the 6th in school history (1983, 1985, 1991, 1997, 1998, 2014)

Since their last 10-win season in 1998, Air Force had only finished with 9 wins 3 times (2000, 2007, 2010), the last two of which came under current coach Troy Calhoun, a 1989 graduate of the Air Force Academy (he played QB for Air Force)

Pictured below, USAF Colonel Terry Virts watches the game from the International Space Station, where he has been since November 23. He graduated the Air Force Academy with Academic Distinction in 1989 and began his career as an F-16 pilot. He later was the pilot for the Space Shuttle Endeavour that launched in 2010

Southern Cal vs. Nebraska: Holiday Bowl

16 December 2014 - 11:18 PM

Sat., Dec. 27 - 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN
San Diego, CA - Qualcomm Stadium

Each team has a DE projected top 5 overall in the draft: Randy Gregory of Nebraska and Leonard Williams of USC. Sports Illustrated has them #2 and #4 on their Draft Board. Draft Countdown has them going #2 and #3 in their latest mock.

Nebraska and USC are two of the nine programs with more than 800 all-time wins. Coming into this season, the two were #7 and #8 all-time in win pct (70.13% and 70.10%).

The two are #6 and #7 in all-time appearances in the final AP Top 25 (Nebraska with 48, USC with 46), and the loser could very well likely not finish in the Top 25 this year...

USC
#24 in AP Poll
#24 in CFP Rankings
#27 in Coaches Poll

Nebraska
#22 in Coaches Poll
#25 in AP Poll
NR in CFP Rankings Top 25
