AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Connor Dietz came off the bench in the second half to spark the Air Force offense and Jared Tew scored a 17-yard touchdown to lead the Falcons to a 10-0 win over Wyoming on Saturday.
Air Force (4-3, 3-1 Mountain West) has now won four straight over the Cowboys (4-3, 2-1), whose three-game winning streak ended.
Tew led Air Force's rushing attack, finishing with 105 yards while Savier Stephens added 46.
All week long, Air Force coach Troy Calhoun was mum on whether he would insert Tim Jefferson back into the starting lineup after a balky right ankle sidelined him for the TCU game last weekend.
Jefferson started, but couldn't move the Falcons.
Dietz entered soon after halftime. He guided the Falcons to two scores, a 29-yard field goal by Erik Soderberg and the sealing TD run by Tew in the fourth quarter.
