After Air Force got a field goal to take a 10-7 lead when a drive stalled near the goal line, Utah came back with another balanced drive to take back the lead.
This time, Matt Asiata was the one finishing the long drive with a short run, carrying it in from one yard out to wrap up a 12-play, 64-yard foray. Utah leads 14-10 midway through the second quarter, and the pace of the game has slowed after a nutty first few minutes.
What hasn't slowed, though, is Air Force's offense. While the Utes lead on the scoreboard, the Falcons have a decided advantage on the stat sheet, outgaining them 218-134, and outpacing them both on the ground and through the air. If the Falcons can hang on to the ball, that stat discrepancy might come back to haunt Utah.
