LOGAN, Utah (AP) — — Haaziq Daniels had the longest touchdown pass of his career and one of four Air Force rushing touchdowns and the Falcons dominated Utah State 35-7.

After allowing a touchdown to the Aggies on the opening drive of the game, the Falcons scored 35 unanswered points to win its second-straight game.

Haazig hooked up with Ben Peterson for a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter.

For Peterson it was also the longest reception of his career.

Senior tailback Kadin Remsberg also returned from an early season injury to lead the team with 107 yards rushing on 11 carries and one touchdown.

The Falcon defense held Utah State to 232 total yards, coming up with two turnovers off interceptions by senior defensive back Demani Hansford and freshman linebacker Matthew Malloy.

Daniels had a 37-yard touchdown run in the final minute of the second quarter to cap a 99-yard drive and make it 21-7 at halftime.

Air Force returns to action Nov. 19, traveling to West Point, N.Y., to take on Army West Point.
