Not all Air Force Academy cadets become fighter pilots. However, Air Force's football team will get to dress like them Saturday against UNLV.

In September, Air Force unveiled the five helmet designs for its second edition of the Air Power Legacy Series uniforms. During the 2016 season, the Falcons wore uniforms honoring the World War II-era "Flying Tigers" squadron.

The goal of the uniforms is to "honor the past, present and future" of Air Force fighter jets, according to Chris Miller, Air Force's video coordinator and part of the academy staff who helped design the uniforms.
