Carlton Jones ran for 146 yards and a touchdown, and Army stayed in contention for the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy with a 27-24 victory over host Air Force yesterday.

It was Jones's third 100-yard game this season for Army, which ended an eight-game losing streak against the Falcons and beat Air Force at the academy for the first time in 28 years.

Scott Wesley ran for two second-half touchdowns for Army (2-6), which is tied with Navy for the Trophy with one win each over Air Force. Army plays Navy on Dec. 4.

The game was another disappointment for the Falcons, whose season has been marred by a controversy that began when Coach Fisher DeBerry made statements about black athletes and recruiting.

It also was only the fourth time Air Force (3-7) was swept by Army and Navy since the competition for the trophy began in 1972.
