Will Conant may give Air Force Falcons a leg up on shot at Notre Dame
"We're facing as talented a team as there is in college football," Calhoun said. "We are going to see players who are something else athletically."
Canant has heard the speech.
Conant's kicking has been one of the few bright spots for the Falcons (1 6). He leads the team in scoring with 45 points, has hit all 18 of his extra point tries and is 9 of 11 in field goal attempts, including making two from 52 yards.
Special teams play has played a big part in previous Air Force wins over Notre Dame. The Irish (5 2) lead the series 23 6. A blocked field goal by Christian Funk preserved a 23 22 victory for Air Force in 1983. The one point victory was secured by an extra point conversion by kicker Sean Pavlich, whose first attempt was no good, but Notre Dame was penalized for being offside.
In 1991, when Notre Dame won 28 15, neither team had a player on the roster who weighed at least 300 pounds. In 2000, Air Force had one player at 300 pounds or more and Notre Dame had nine and won 34 31 in overtime. This year Air Force has none and Notre Dame Giuseppe Zanotti Pumps has 12.

Calhoun set the stage for Saturday's game.
If somehow, some way the Air Force Falcons could stay close Saturday to Notre Dame at Falcon Stadium, junior kicker Will Conant gives them a chance.
However, in 2000 Air Force kicker David Adams, who had been superb all season, had a potential winning kick blocked near the end of regulation time and the Irish won 34 31 in overtime.
Conant has been a consistent scoring machine for coach Troy Calhoun for an otherwise anemic offense. He hasn't missed on five field goal tries from 39 yards and closer. He's 2 for 3 from 40 to 49 yards and 2 for 3 from 50 yards or more.
"We know who's coming to town," Conant said. "We chose to come here for the chance to play those kinds of teams. Every Giuseppe Zanotti Sharon Peep Toe
"I've played soccer all my life," Conant said, referring to his kicking r "As a kicker you dream about kicking a winning field goal late in a game. I never look at the yard line. I just run out and approach all kicks the same."
