The Air Force Falcons (4-4) could do no wrong against the hapless New Mexico Lobos (0-8), generating 3 turnovers and rushing for 335 yards.
Starting quarterback Tim Jefferson left in the first quarter with an injury and did not return, but the Air Force offense survived without their senior star. Backup quarterback Conner Dietz and junior Mike DeWitt led the way offensively for Air Force, scoring a combined five touchdowns. Dietz, who also completed a 17 yard pass, rushed for 87 yards and a touchdown, while DeWitt carried the heavy load, rushing 15 times for 64 yards and a whopping 4 touchdowns.
The Falcons defense did not dissappoint either, allowing only 223 total offensive yards to the Lobos offense. Quarterback B.R. Holbrook completed 17 of 27 for only 109 yards, lobbing interceptions to both senior Jon Davis and sophomore Anthony Wooding.
The Falcons will be in action again next Satuday, taking on the Army Black Knights at 1:30 PM MDT.
