DeWitt leads AFA to 42-0 win against New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Mike DeWitt scored a career-high four touchdowns, three in the first half, leading Air Force to a 42-0 victory over New Mexico on Saturday.

Air Force (4-4, 1-3 Mountain West) played most of the game without quarterback Tim Jefferson, who went out with an undisclosed injury in the first quarter. But backup Connor Dietz stepped in
with a big performance, collecting 87 yards and a touchdown on six carries.

DeWitt finished with 64 yards on 15 carries and backfield mate Asher Clark added 75 yards on 10 carries.

For the Lobos (0-8, 0-3), Crusoe Gongbay rushed for 63 yards on 10 carries.

The Falcons scored their first touchdown when Austin Briehl recovered a teammates' fumble in the end zone. DeWitt scored three straight touchdowns, going in from 4, 12 and 3, before Dietz sprinted in from 39 yards with a minute remaining in the first half to put Air Force up 35-0 at halftime.
