Air Force quarterback Tim Jefferson threw for 83 yards and rushed for 62 more and a pair of touchdowns as the Falcons defeated Navy, 14-6, in a nonconference showdown at Falcon Stadium to take a big step toward capturing the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for 2010. Jared Tew carried the ball 17 times for 111 yards in the win for Air Force (4-1), who upended the Midshipmen for the first time in eight years. Navy (2-2) saw a less than impressive day from quarterback Ricky Dobbs, who connected on just six of his 18 pass attempts for 103 yards and two interceptions.

Georgia Tech (6-6) vs. Air Force (8-4) When: Monday, 5 p.m. Where: Shreveport, La. TV: ESPN2 About Georgia Tech (4-4 ACC): As usual, the Yellow Jackets had no trouble using their triple-option offense to pile up gaudy rushing statistics. Georgia Tech led the nation with 327 rushing yards per game. But the Yellow Jackets struggled to stop opposing offenses, especially down the stretch. Four of Georgia Tech's final five opponents — Duke was the lone exception — scored at least 27 points.

A nationally televised college football game between Navy and Air Force at a sold-out stadium in Annapolis could become one of the more visible casualties of the U.S. government shutdown. While Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said Tuesday that a final decision would not be reached until noon Thursday, Air Force officials issued a statement that said the game was being called off “for now” along with all other intercollegiate sports events. Gladchuk said there was a “significant possibility” that the game would be canceled, adding that “it's going to be a setback of the highest order if this game doesn't happen.” But Gladchuk is holding out hope that the U.S. Department of Defense will allow the game to be played.

By voice vote, the Senate approved a measure requiring Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld to name by May 1 an independent panel to review the Air Force's response to dozens of allegations of rape, sexual assault and other sexual misconduct at the academy within the past decade.

This time a week ago, Cornell was the lone undefeated team in Division I and was No. 2 in the nation. Consecutive 14-9 losses at home to Harvard and Syracuse have altered its national standing dramatically, but coach Matt Kerwick and his players say the team's psyche remains undamaged. "I'm not concerned," Kerwick said. "We have great leadership in that locker room. Two games don't determine a season. We're not worried about that at all. Confidence is a very important part of lacrosse, probably more so than any sport I've been around, and we have to make sure we continue to stay confident because we have all the faith in the world in this team and I don't second-guess it at all. " "Our ticket's the Ivy League," defenseman Tom Freshour said after Tuesday's loss to the Orange.

Promoting the best officers is essential to having the most powerful military force on the planet. The de facto requirement for officers in the U.S. Air Force to obtain a master's degree in order to be promoted is blatantly ridiculous because it hinders the organization from properly valuing professional experience to identify its best and brightest for leadership. Starting at the first competitive promotion from captain to major, there is no "official" requirement to have a master's degree.

The A-10 Thunderbolt II, a snub-nosed ground-attack plane that the Maryland Air National Guard has flown in Iraq and Afghanistan, is the latest aircraft to find its way onto the Pentagon's endangered weapons list. Outfitted with a seven-barrel Gatling gun the size of a Volkswagen Beetle in its nose, the Cold War-era plane has a reputation for tearing apart armored tanks and clearing the way for troops on the ground with its massive 30-millimeter rounds of ammunition. But the unsightly plane - it's nicknamed the Warthog - has been in the cross hairs of Pentagon officials in recent years.

(Originally published December 26, 1943) For an hour yesterday, over a radio network that extended through Maryland and into Pennsylvania and Virginia, a special Sunpapers' Christmas broadcast brought to their folk and friends back home the voices and music of more than two-score soldiers from the three states who are stationed in the British Isles. The broadcast came from an army camp “somewhere in England” where invasion forces are training, and from a base of the Eighth Air Force elsewhere in the British Isles, through arrangements with the Army Special Services and the British Broadcast Corporation.

Demond Brown's time at Navy had finally come - or so it seemed. With the departure of senior slotbacks Gee Gee Greene, Bo Snelson and John Howell after last season, Brown had emerged from the competition this spring as a starter for one of the two coveted slotback spots. It was an impressive accomplishment for Brown, who had grown up in Annapolis but had never been to a game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium until he was being recruited. Then, two days into preseason practice, Brown was sidelined by a hamstring injury.
