Troy Calhoun has exceeded some people's expectations as Air Force's coach.
After becoming the first academy graduate to become the Falcons head coach, the team was coming off three consecutive losing seasons. He was told by some it'd be an accomplishment to get to one bowl over the next five years.
Well, Air Force (6-6) will makes its school-record sixth consecutive bowl appearance on Saturday, against Rice (6-6) in the Armed Forces Bowl.
Like Rice, which had to win its last four games just to be bowl eligible, the Falcons want to finish with a winning record.
