Air Force holds on against Wyoming

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Tim Jefferson ran 7 yards for the decisive score late in the fourth quarter and Jared Tew ran for 136 yards and a score to lead Air Force past Wyoming 20-14 on Saturday.

Wyoming (1-3, 0-1 Mountain West Conference) blocked the extra point after Jefferson put the Falcons up 20-14 with 3:41 remaining, but Air Force forced a turnover on the Cowboys' next possession when Jon Davis recovered a fumble by Wyoming's David Leonard.

Air Force (3-1, 2-0) then ran out the last 2:50.

Jefferson finished with 94 yards rushing. Alvester Alexander ran for 123 yards and two touchdowns for Wyoming.

Air Force tied the game at 14 on a 9-yard run by Nathan Walker a few minutes into the fourth. The Cowboys briefly led after Alexander snaked in from 9 yards out and a 14-7 score in the third
