The Air Force–Colorado State football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Air Force Falcons football team of the Air Force Academy and Colorado State Rams football team of Colorado State University. The Ram–Falcon Trophy is awarded to the winner of the game.

Ram–Falcon Trophy[edit]

The origin of the Ram–Falcon Trophy is traced back to Shelly Godkin, a former ROTC commander at Colorado State.[1] He watched the teams play in 1978 and sought to translate his impressions into a trophy symbolic of an annual game. It was first awarded in 1980. Air Force has won it 20 times, while Colorado State has won it 13 times.
