After TCU's first score, the Falcons went three-and-out and left the Horned Frogs on their own 32-yard line. Casey Pachall went 3-for-3 on the ensuing drive, but it was running back Matthew Tucker who rushed for 22 yards and then one yard for the touchdown.
Air Force quarterback Tim Jefferson led another drive into TCU territory on the following possession, but he fumbled the ball and saw TCU take control of it. Luckily, Casey Pachall wasn't able to do anything with that ball and wound up punting the ball. Air Force did follow with an Asher Clark 34-yard run on a couple of reverses, but it ended with another punt.
