VMI is a little bit off the beaten path in traveling to the Air Force Academy. This is the farthest west the Keydets have ever played a football game.
Even more, it's only the fifth time the team from Lexington, Virginia, has played a game west of the Mississippi River.

Before Saturday, the farthest west the Keydets have played a game was in College Station, Texas, in 1950. They've also ventured to Iowa State (1963) and twice to Houston to face Rice ('69 and '70).
