United States : Air Force Classic Comes to the Cotton Bowl: Lockheed Martin Presenting Sponsor of Football Game at the State Fair of Texas.

On Oct. 15, the Air Force Academy Falcons will face the University of New Mexico Lobos as part of the inaugural Air Force Classic at the Cotton Bowl Stadium, presented by Lockheed Martin. The football game will take place during the third weekend of the State Fair of Texas, a longstanding Dallas-owned tradition that traces its roots to 1886.

As part of Lockheed Martins sponsorship, all JROTC students in the Dallas-Fort Worth area are eligible to receive one complimentary ticket to attend the game and the State Fair. JROTC students in attendance will be recognized on the field during the event. Learn more about the JROTC ticket program.

Lockheed Martin has a strong legacy of partnership in the Dallas-Fort Worth community, said Rick Edwards, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. We are proud to sponsor the matchup between these two great teams and present the inaugural Air Force Classic as part of the State Fair of Texas.

Lockheed Martin has more than 15,000 employees in North Texas, primarily at its Aeronautics business headquarters in Fort Worth and its Missiles and Fire Control headquarters in Grand Prairie.

The game kicks off at 2:30 p.m. Central Time with an F-16 flyover and can be viewed on ESPNews. To learn more about the game and to purchase tickets, visit the Air Force Athletics website or call (719) 472-1895.
