AIR FORCE 34, NORTH TEXAS 21

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (Ticker) -- Chance Harridge
efficiently made up for lost time.

Harridge passed for 156 yards and a career-high three touchdowns
as Air Force continued another quick start with a 34-21 triumph
over North Texas.

A week ago, Harridge was ejected for throwing a punch in the
third quarter of Air Force's come-from-behind 22-21 victory at
Northwestern. He was back in the lineup against North Texas
(1-2) and threw a pair of scoring strikes to J.P. Waller as the
Falcons won for the 25th time in their last 30 games in August
and September.

Harridge hooked up with Waller for a 20-yard touchdown to open
the scoring with just under 4 1/2 minutes to go in the first
quarter, then found halfback Darnell Stephens for an 18-yard
score midway through the second period to put Air Force (3-0)
ahead for good, 13-7.

Harridge, who completed 10-of-15 passes with an interception,
hit Waller again for an 11-yard TD in the final minute of the
second quarter as the Falcons took a 28-7 halftime lead.

Joey Ashcroft added a pair of field goals in the second half for
Air Force, which is 7-0 in August and September over the last
two seasons.

Scott Hall passes for one score and ran for another for North
Texas, which was coming off a 52-14 rout of Baylor but managed
just 57 rushing yards.
