    Air Force briefly recovered after giving up a goal in the first two minutes on Friday night. But when it gave up a goal in the final 2.6 seconds of the first period, RIT took charge.

  • Garrett Brown, Jalen Robinette a rare duo in Air Force passing game

    Garrett Griffin, from his tight end position, has the perfect vantage point to decipher how opposing defenses weigh the threats posed by the Air Force offense.

  • Five questions for state's college hockey teams this weekend

  • Air Force outscores New Mexico behind fullbacks, passing game and late defense

    Jalen Robinette reached up over his head at about the 15-yard line and hauled in a pass in stride. From there, he just played by feel. He shrugged off an attempted tackle when a cornerback tried to grab his shoulders, he then stopped on a dime, sending another defensive back flying by him. Only one New Mexico defender was left, and the...

    The Mountain West is stumbling through a down football year. Meanwhile, Air Force celebrates a rise, partially because the Falcons could only climb after a horrific 2013 season.

  • Fullbacks finally in the middle of the action for Air Force

    Fullback Shayne Davern ran for 8 yards on Air Force's first play Saturday. He ran for 3 more on the second play, giving the Falcons a first down and quickly revealing a key component of the game plan: This was going to be the week that Air Force involved its fullbacks.
