It'll be the first time in nearly 25 years that the Air Force Academy Falcons won't have Fisher DeBerry on the sidelines.
They won't have the triple-option as their offense on Saturday, either.
It's a new era for the Falcons as new coach Troy Calhoun makes his debut, when Air Force hosts South Carolina State.
Calhoun brings much more than a new face to academy. He brings NFL experience and a new pro style offense. He spent four years on Mike Shanahan's Broncos staff in Denver, then followed Gary Kubiak to the Houston Texans to serve as offensive coordinator last season.
One key factor sure to make a difference during Calhoun's first season is senior quarterback Shaun Carney, the school's first-ever freshman to start a season opener in 2004.
Carney threw 12 touchdown passes and only three interceptions in just 137 attempts last season.
