AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- Quarterback Donald Hammond III rushed for a career-high 136 yards to re-energize the ground game and threw two TD passes to tight end Kade Waguespack as Air Force beat New Mexico 42-24 on Saturday.

Defensive back Grant Theil powered the Air Force defense with an interception and a forced fumble that led to a pair of touchdowns in the third quarter to give the Falcons (4-6, 2-4 Mountain West) some breathing room.

Hammond's big day also included a 37-yard TD run to help the Falcons snap a two-game skid and keep their bowl aspirations afloat.
