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

Ram–Falcon Trophy[edit | edit source]

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 leads the trophy series 24–15.
