AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Freshman Jamil Cooks hurdled a blocker to smother a punt, setting up quarterback Tim Jefferson's second touchdown run, and Air Force beat Navy for the first time in eight years 14-6 on Saturday.
The Falcons (4-1) were clinging to a one-point lead when Cooks jumped over Jared Marks in the backfield and kept right on going to block Kyle Delahooke's punt. The ball rolled backward to the Navy 15-yard line.
After three rushes, Jefferson, who also had a 50-yard touchdown run, pushed his way into the end zone from a yard out with 12:38 remaining.
Navy drove to the Air Force 33-yard line before Jordan Waiwaiole intercepted Ricky Dobbs' third-down pass with 25 seconds to go to help Air Force snap its seven-year losing streak to Navy.
