The Air Force Falcons football team has clinched a spot to play for the Mountain West championship against West Division champions San Diego State Dec. 5.

The Falcons (8-3) punched their ticket to the 2015 Sports Authority Mountain West Football Championship when they defeated Boise State 37-30 on Nov. 20 and with Colorado State's 28-21 win over New Mexico on Nov. 21. Air Force closes the regular season at New Mexico on Nov. 28 at 10:15 p.m. EST.

"I'm so proud of our entire football program, from our players, coaches and staff, on this significant accomplishment," said Jim Knowlton, the U.S. Air Force Academy's athletic director. "It doesn't happen without the support of the entire Academy, starting with our superintendent, Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson.”

The location of the championship will be determined by the rankings after this week's games.

Kickoff against San Diego State in the Dec. 5 championship game is at 7:30 p.m. EST.
