Recap: Army vs. Air Force

West Point, NY ( - Kale Pearson threw a pair of touchdown passes to Garrett Griffin, as the Air Force Falcons swept the Academies with a 23-6 road win over Army at Michie Stadium.

With the victory and having already beaten Navy last month, Air Force (6-2) locked up its 19th Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. Jacobi Owens added 118 yards on 27 carries for the Falcons, winners of five of their last six games overall.

The Black Knights (2-6) managed only eight first downs and 169 yards of total offense as they lost for the 16th time in the last 18 meetings with Air Force.

Army's Daniel Grochowski accounted for the only points of the first quarter with a 42-yard field goal at the 10:17 mark. The score was set up by Josh Jenkins' interception on the Falcons' opening series, which he returned to the Air Force 28.

Air Force took a 6-3 lead following consecutive second-quarter field goals by Will Conant (38, 26 yards).

The Falcons notched the game's first touchdown on their third play from scrimmage in the second half as Pearson found Griffin for a 54-yard scoring strike to make it a 13-3 game. A 50-yard field goal by Conant three minutes later made it 16-3.

Army answered with a 14-play possession that took more than six and a half minutes off the clock, but the Black Knights had to settle for a 46-yard field goal by Grochowski after the drive stalled.

Air Force iced it with an 11-play drive that ate up almost half of the fourth quarter. Pearson capped that decisive drive with a two-yard TD pass to Griffin to make it a 23-6 game with just over seven minutes to play.

The Falcons more than doubled up Army in total yards, 383-169.
