Hillman leads San Diego State past Air Force

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Ronnie Hillman scored on 22- and 57-yard runs in the fourth quarter and San Diego State survived a series of trick plays figuring in two Air Force scores to pull away for a 41-27 victory Thursday night.

Hillman shook off a late fumble to finish with 172 yards on 27 carries, the sophomore running back's 11th 100-yard performance in 18 career games. They include a 191-yard effort last year in a 27-25 victory over Air Force in San Diego.

Ryan Lindley threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns, including a go-ahead 28-yard score to Colin Lockett late in the third quarter to help San Diego State (4-2, 1-1 Mountain West) bounce back from successive losses. The Aztecs are off to their best start since 1977, when they began the season 5-1.

Tim Jefferson had touchdown passes of 18 and 26 yards to Jonathan Warzeka among his 22 completions in 36 attempts for 224 yards for Air Force (3-3, 0-2).
