Air Force Rallies From Halftime Deficit To Knock Off Army

After a lethargic opening 30 minutes, Air Force used a couple of key turnovers to find its momentum on the offensive end and rallied for a 24-14 victory. The Falcons trailed 14-0 at the half, as Army converted a fumble by QB Tim Jefferson on his own 18 into a TD. The Black Knights were able to generate consistent success running the ball early in the game, but had no answer for the Falcons in the second half.

The second half rally was led by Jefferson, who couldn't find any rhythm in the first 30 minutes. Jefferson rushed for two key TD's in the second half, while also keeping the Army defense honest by throwing for 122 yards. Along with the 68 yards rushing from Jefferson, Air Force also received 78 yards rushing from Asher Clark

For the Black Knights, sophomore RB Raymond Maples was outstanding in the defeat. Maples ran for a game-high 132 yards on just 17 attempts. However, Army couldn't muster any success throwing the ball, with senior QB Max Jenkins completing just 2/10.
