Air Force dominates CSU 34 - 16

The Air Force Falcons (5-4, 4-2) were in control the whole game as they took down a struggling Colorado State (3-6, 0-5) team 34 - 16.  Tim Jefferson started and played well for the Falcons with two passing touchdowns.  Colorado State actually won the time of possession battle but couldn't muster much against the Falcons defense.

Air Force had 271 yards on the ground and a touchdown from Jared Tew.  The Falcons had little trouble moving the ball on the Colorado State defense as they only punted once and at one point scored 20 unanswered points between the 2nd and 3rd quarters.  Kicker Erik Soderberg nailed a 50 yard kick as time expired in the 2nd quarter, it was 3 of his 8 points on the day.

On defense the Falcons held the Rams to only 87 passing yards on the day.  No CSU receiver had more then two catches.  Reggie Rembert grabbed his third interception of the year in the 3rd quarter to stop any comeback ideas the Rams had.

Colorado State was bad all day.  It reflected in the play calling as Grant Stucker wasn't asked to pass the ball down the field much at all.  It was a steady diet of Leonard Mason and screen passes.  Mason finished with a game high 95 yards and was the Rams lone bright spot on the day.  Stucker was eventually pulled for back up Jon Eastman.  The Rams 2nd half woes continued as they were outscored 17-6 after halftime.  This was the 6th consecutive loss for the Rams.  However ugly it has been the Rams still have a shot at being a bowl team, they would need to win out against UNLV, New Mexico, and Wyoming.
