We’re tied again, and Air Force has converted yet another fourth down (3 for 4 today). Tim Jefferson hits Jonathan Warzeka over the middle with a 37-yard slant for the score. Warzeka easily waltzed into the end zone. 2:07 to go in the first half.
Asher Clark scores on fourth-and-goal at the Toledo 1-yard line, and the ensuing PAT means we’re now tied up. Clark’s touchdown completes Air Force’s comeback from an early two-touchdown hole. 9:43 remains in the first half.
And the hits keep coming! Jonathan Warzeka takes the counter-option and busts it loose for a sick 60-yard run. Mike DeWitt scores on the ensuing play, on a 3-yard run. 1:36 left in the first quarter. If you believe in friendly wagers, I hope you had the over.
Air Force came through on a key fourth-and-1 conversion on its own side of midfield, then Tim Jefferson turned third-and-13 into a 22-yard touchdown run. It’s his 33rd rushing touchdown at Air Force, his 11th in 2011. The Falcons also benefitted from a pass interference call in the end zone.
Adonis Thomas has extended Toledo’s lead, taking advantage of a fumble on the kickoff following Toledo’s first touchdown. His 41-yard touchdown run on the first play of the series put him at more than 1,000 yards for the season.
