Final Score: Air Force 10, Wyoming 0
USAFA, CO (Sports Network) - Jared Tew ran for 105 yards and a touchdown and the Air Force defense did the rest, as the Falcons blanked the Wyoming Cowboys, 10-0, in Mountain West Conference action at Falcon Stadium.
Air Force (4-3, 3-1 MWC) gained 269 yards on the ground, while recording its first shutout over a conference opponent since blanking Colorado State 24-0 in 1997.
Wyoming (4-3, 2-1) saw its three-game win streak come to an end, as it managed just 174 yards of total offense.

Air Force scored the first points of the game on a 29-yard field goal by Erik Soderberg late in the third quarter.
The Falcons added to their lead with a 17-yard touchdown run by Tew early in the fourth quarter and the defense made it stand.
