Army holds back Air Force, runs home streak to 11
Fullback Darnell Woolfolk rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown, Kelvin Hopkins Jr. scored on a 6-yard run, and Army held off service academy rival Air Force 17-14 on Saturday.
It was the 11th straight victory at Michie Stadium for Army (7-2), which will keep the Commander in Chief’s Trophy, emblematic of supremacy among the three service academies, regardless of the outcome of its game next month against archrival Navy. Army won the trophy outright last season for the first time since 1996.
Air Force (3-6), which beat Navy 35-7 a month ago, is 33-14 in Commander in Chief’s Trophy games against Army since the trophy was first awarded in 1972.
Air Force had won 18 of the previous 21 in the series against the Black Knights, but one of those Army victories was 21-0 last year at Air Force. That loss snapped a school-record, 306-game scoring streak by the Falcons dating to 1992.
The Falcons were unable to score in the first half with Isaiah Sanders at quarterback, fell behind by two scores, and couldn’t recover despite a late rally. The Black Knights secured the victory when Donald Hammond III was stopped for no gain on a fourth-and-3 play at the Army 40 with under 2 minutes to play.
Wyoming 24, San Jose State 9: Nico Evans rushed for 187 yards, including a 58-yard score, and Sean Chambers added 129 yards to lead the host Cowboys (4-6, 2-4 Mountain West). It was the third straight game in which the running back and quarterback each rushed for over 100 yards. Love was 19 of 32 passing for 173 yards for San Jose State (1-8, 1-4), while
Tyler Nevens rushed for 70 yards on 17 attempts.
