ARMY HISTORY

Air Force had beaten Army 21 of 23 times since Army’s 28-15 win over the Falcons at Michie Stadium in 1988. The Falcons had won 17 of those games by 10 or more points.

STEELMAN KEEPS RISING

Army quarterback Trent Steelman passed Tim Tebow on the list of the NCAA’s all-time leading rushing leaders. Steelman has 2,983 yards in his Army career. Tebow gained 2,947 yards rushing for Florida from 2006-2009. Air Force’s Dee Dowis is seventh on the quarterback list with 3,612 yards. Pat White is on top of the list with 4,480.

Steelman has rushed for 40 touchdowns. He’s second on Army’s all-time TD list behind Glenn Davis, who scored 43 rushing touchdowns from 1943-46. Steelman also passed Davis (2,959) for third place on Army’s all-time rushing list.

CALHOUN’S NUMBERS

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun is 5-1 vs. Army. He’s 2-4 against Navy. Calhoun has a 16-16 road record since arriving at Air Force in 2007. He’s 46-28 overall.

CODY GETZ UPDATE

Senior tailback Cody Getz gained 23 yards. Getz gained 887 in Air Force’s first games and led the nation in yards per game. He suffered a left ankle injury after gaining 42 yards against Wyoming and did not gain a yard against New Mexico and Nevada.

Calhoun said Getz’s ankle was “completely fine.”

COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF’S UPDATE

Army can claim its first Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy since 1996 if it defeats Navy on Dec. 8. Navy has defeated Army 10 straight times. Air Force had won the trophy for two straight seasons. Army came into Saturday’s game with 24 losses in its past 26 games against Air Force and Navy.
