WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Tim Jefferson scored twice and hit Jonathan Warzeka on touchdown passes of 53 and 63 yards to help Air Force beat Army 42-22 on Saturday to win the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for the 17th time.
Navy had won the past seven trophies, but the Falcons beat the Midshipmen 14-6 in October behind Jefferson's two touchdowns. Saturday's victory gave Air Force its first trophy for the best
team among the three service academies, since 2002.
Jordan Waiwaiole returned a fumble 63 yards for another score.
Army (5-4) took a 6-0 lead on field goals of 30 and 41 yards by Alex Carlton before Jefferson got the Falcons going.
He scored on a 3-yard run on the first play of the second quarter and hit Warzeka for a 53-yard score to give the Falcons (6-4) a lead they never relinquished in beating Army for the seventh straight time at Michie Stadium.
