Air Force vs. Army score update: Falcons strike back to tie, 7-7, after one quarter

The Air Force Falcons responded to an early score by the Army Black Knights to tie the score, 7-7, after one quarter at West Point's Michie Stadium. The stadium lost power at one point late in the first quarter.

The Falcons got on the board with 4:30 left in the first quarter thanks to a 1-yard touchdown by Wes Cobb, which tied the game up at seven. The drive was aided by two penalties on Army, both of which gave Air Force first downs.

Army opened the scoring on its first drive of the game, scoring on a 4-yard touchdown run by Trent Steelman. The opening drive for the Black Knights went 66 yards in 13 plays, eating up more than six and a half minutes of the first quarter.

Air Force comes into the game with a 5-3 record on the season. Army has struggled to a 1-7 record thus far in 2012, but the one victory did come at Michie Stadium.

The game is being televised on CBS Sports Network.
