Air Force Routs Tennessee State, 63-24

The Air Force kept clicking in the second half as they finished what they started in routing Tennessee State, 63-24. After the Falcons scored on a seven-yard touchdown pass from Tim Jefferson to Joshua Freeman, extending their lead to 42-10, the Falcons never threw a pass the rest of the game.

Air Force ran the ball at will against Tennessee State, as they accumulated 596 yards rushing on the day. Asher Clark led the rushing attack with 13 carries for 148 yards. On the day the Falcons had 17 players run 64 times with an average of 9.2 yards per carry. Overall Air Force had 793 yards of total offense.

In the passing game quarterback Tim Jefferson went 11-of-13 with 178 yards and three touchdown passes while also running the ball only three times for 41 yards.

The Air Force defense held there own, but did allow 394 yards of total offense. However, they continually forced Tennessee State into third down situations and held them to 3-of-15, stopping multiple drives.

Next week Air Force takes on a much stiffer challenge when they travel to take on the Navy Midshipmen in the first leg for the Commander-In-Chief Trophy.
