MI redshirt senior QB Wilton Speight completed just 14 of 23 attempts for 169 yards in the school's 29-13 win over Air Force on Saturday. Quarterback Wilton Speight is 7-for-12 with 105 passing yards and no turnovers.

MI running back Karan Higdon (22) scores a touchdown in the fourth quarter of an NCAA college football game against Air Force in Ann Arbor, Mich., Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017.

People-Jones gathered in Charlie Scott's 53-yard punt, weaved around defenders and eluded Scott's tackle attempt at the 10 to give MI a 16-6 lead 1:09 into the second half. Running back Ty Isaac does have nine carries for 61 rushing yards, but MI is now being outrushed as a team by the Falcons. Cleveland got past safety Tyree Kinnel, caught Worthman's toss at midfield and raced to the end zone on the 64-yard play.

Nordin tied the MI school record with his fifth field goal - a 36-yarder with 14:15 remaining on the clock.

The Wolverines have beaten Air Force twice in program history, including a 31-25 victory in the most recent matchup in 2012, and can extend their home winning streak to nine games with another triumph.

Higdon's touchdown completed the scoring.


The two teams traded field goals in the second stanza, including a 26-yarder by Nordin followed by a 50-yarder by Strebel, once again deadlocking the count at 6-6.

Nordin's 35-yard field goal gave MI an early advantage.

Speight completed two pass plays of at least 30 years early in the second quarter but MI had to settle for Nordin's 26-yard field goal.

Running back Chris Evans also fumbled the ball on the team's second drive of the game.

MI looking nothing like the #7 team in the country (even in a winning effort against Air Force at home).

NOTES: The Wolverines are now 10-0 against current members of the Mountain West Conference. MI has defeated Air Force in all three meetings. "You've got to be patient and we're going to coach them up but it's a long road ahead", MI coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters.
