Air Force vs. Army score update: Falcons' 3 turnovers lead to 20-7 halftime deficit

The Air Force Falcons turned the ball over three times, including two interceptions, in the second quarter as they fell behind the Army Black Knights, 20-7, at halftime. The game is being played at West Point's Michie Stadium, which briefly lost power during the first half.

After a 7-7 first quarter, Army took over in the second quarter, forcing turnovers and converting them into points.The Army defense stopped Air Force on a fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line early in the quarter, setting up their go-ahead scoring drive. Daniel Grochowski hit a 20-yard field goal to give the Black Knights a 10-7 lead in the second quarter.

Air Force took the ball back with 4:43 left to play after a missed field goal attempt by Army, but the Falcons could not capitalize, however, with quarterback Connor Dietz throwing an interception on the first play after taking over.

On the ensuing drive, Army's Trent Steelman pushed up the middle from the 1-yard line to give the Black Knights a 17-7 lead. The touchdown capped an eight-play, 43-yard drive in just under three minutes.

Just seconds later, Dietz was picked off again, this time by Geoffrey Bacon, inside of the game's final minute. That interception set up a 36-yard field goal by Grochowski just three seconds before halftime, putting the Black Knights ahead, 20-7.

Air Force kicked off to begin the game and will receive the ball at the start of the second half.

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.

The game is being televised on CBS Sports Network.
