Pictures from Air Force's demolition of BYU


Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, BYU.

Air Force exacted revenge on BYU after years of frustration against their Mountain West Conference rival, rolling up 409 rushing yards in a 35-14 home win. It was the Falcons’ first win against BYU since 2003.

Not only did the victory get the monkey off the back for Air Force, it surely also brought a smile to the faces of administrators and coaches around the entire MWC. You see, this is the Cougars’ last season in the Mountain West, thanks to their decision to go independent in an attempt to reap more TV dollars. That decision has upset fellow MWC members and put the conference’s future in question. I doubt if the Air Force players care too much about that sort of nonsense, but their victory surely made a lot of suit-wearing MWC people very, very happy.
