Jon Davis intercepted two passes, returning one for a touchdown, to lead Air Force to a 37-13 victory over New Mexico on Saturday. The Falcons (2-1, 1-0 Mountain West Conference) defense held the Lobos (0-3, 0-1) to 290 total yards and forced four turnovers in the conference opener for both teams.
The night began with Bud Grant in tears and ended with a career performance from a native Minnesotan. From start to finish, the first game in Minnesota's new stadium could not have gone much better. Nate Triplett christened the new home with a career-high 17 tackles and a 52-yard fumble return for a score to carry the Gophers to a 20-13 win over Air Force on Saturday night.
