AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- — Haazig Daniels ran for three touchdowns and Air Force beat Lafayette 35-14 on Saturday.

Davis gave the Falcons a comfortable cushion with his third score and Corvan Taylor followed with an Air Force interception.
Brad Roberts had 25 carries for 111 yards and Davis added 101 on just four attempts. Daniels had 72 yards rushing and 50 passing. The Falcons outrushed Lafayette 375-43.
