AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Asher Clark rushed for a career-high 169 yards, Wesley Cobb scored twice and Air Force kept its bowl hopes alive with a 45-17 win over UNLV on Saturday night.
Quarterback Tim Jefferson looked sharp in his return from a concussion as the Falcons (6-5, 2-4 Mountain West) beat the Rebels (2-8, 1-4) for a fifth straight time.
Jefferson did most of his damage with his legs, rushing for 81 yards and a score. He also threw for 128 yards and another TD.
Tim Cornett finished with 104 yards rushing and Bradley Randle added a short touchdown late in the final quarter for the Rebels, who dropped their 15th straight road game.
Even though the Falcons won their sixth game of the season, they aren't quite bowl eligible since two of their wins came against FCS teams. They still have to beat rival Colorado State on the road in the season finale next weekend.
