FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Arion Worthman threw a 56-yard TD pass early in the fourth quarter, Taven Birdow scored twice and Air Force's methodical rushing attack kept Colorado State's high-powered offense grounded in a 45-28 win over the Rams on Saturday.

Air Force (4-4, 3-2 Mountain West) rushed for 413 yards and dominated time of possession (41 minutes, 38 seconds to 18:22). Worthman completed just two passes, both in the fourth quarter and the last a strike to Ryan Reffitt with 11:53 remaining to make it 38-28. After a Rams punt, the Falcons went on a game-sealing 13-play, 98-yard drive that chewed up 7:09 and culminated with Worthman's 7-yard scamper.
