Arizona announced a future home-and-home football series with the Air Force Falcons Tuesday morning, with the games scheduled for the 2029 and 2031 seasons. 

The first contest will be played at Arizona Stadium in Tucson on Sept. 15, with the second one scheduled in Colorado Springs on Sept. 6. Other nonconference games in '29 include a road opener at Hawaii and a home opener against Virginia Tech; the '31 season has home nonconference games against Northern Arizona and Nebraska. 

Arizona and Air Force have faced each other nine times and the Falcons have a 6-3 advantage. The last time they played each other was in 1974, when Jim Young was the head coach of the Wildcats and Arizona was a part of the Western Athletic Conference (WAC).
