Steelman paces Army over Air Force 41-21

WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Trent Steelman rushed for 101 yards and scored twice, the Army defense held Air Force's high-powered offense in check for three quarters, and the Black Knights beat the Falcons 41-21 on Saturday to snap a six-game losing streak in the series.

Army (2-7) also stopped a 13-game skid in service academy games.

Steelman was injured and did not play against Air Force last season in a 24-14 road loss. He more than made up for that absence on this day in a contest featuring the top two rushing teams in the nation. Steelman, who moved past Glenn Davis into third place all-time in rushing at West Point with 2,983 yards, passed for 100 yards and guided a ground attack that netted 314.

Army entered the game leading the nation in rushing at 383 yards per game, just 17 more than the second-place Falcons
