Falcons worried about Army rushing game

U.S. Air Force Academy, Colo. (AP) - The Air Force Falcons could secure another trip to the White House with a win over Army.

By beating the Black Knights on Saturday, the Falcons would wrap up their second straight Commander-in-Chief's Trophy, which represents superiority among the three service academies and carries along with it a chance to meet the President.

But that's on the back burner for the moment.

The Falcons (4-4) are far more concerned with holding Army's vaunted ground game in check than hoisting the prized trophy.

The Black Knights (3-5) boast the top rushing attack in the country, averaging 369 yards, and that has Air Force coach Troy Calhoun on edge.
