Air Force Falcons vs. Navy 

When: Sat., Oct. 2, 12:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $27.50-$40.50

We have so many special events here appealing to different constituencies. But few if any have the universal magnetism and pageantry of a service-academy football game. Air Force hosts one a year, and today Navy comes to Falcon Stadium (Air Force Academy grounds, with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff. Don't wait until Saturday for tickets ($27.50 and $40.50, with free parking) because it'll probably be a sellout of 46,000-plus. Outside the stadium, you'll find the usual Falcon Fanfest pregame activities (live music, inflatable games, food vendors, etc.) starting at least three hours beforehand. Inside, the cadets, including Navy's contingent, march in 20 minutes before kickoff, and the flyovers might include a B-2 stealth bomber. Then there's the game itself, and these two bowl-bound teams went to overtime last year at Annapolis. Why not again? — Ralph Routon
