Draft Scout Jacobi Owens News
09/27/16 - Jacobi Owens scored on a 1-yard TD run with 5:06 left in the fourth quarter and Air Force opened the Mountain West Conference season with a 27-20 win over Utah State on Saturday night. Air Force's Haji Dunn Jr. set up Owens' score when he sacked Kent Myers, forced the fumble and recovered it at the Utah State 14. Owens capped the short drive by breaking a tackle and spinning into the end zone to make it 24-13. The Falcons (3-0, 1-0) then forced a four-and-out to quickly take the ball back and made it a 14-point lead on Luke Strebel's field goal with 2:57 left.
The Aggies (2-2, 0-1) cut the deficit back to one score with 33 seconds left after a 12-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. But Ryan Reffitt recovered the onside pooch kick to secure the win. "Forcing turnovers was a huge part of it," Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun said. "We gave them some yards, but we were able to hold them out of the end zone in the first half. In the second half we played really well defensively." Utah State tried a fake field goal on fourth-and-goal from the 18 on the first play of the fourth quarter but came up 6 yards short of the end zone. - AP Sports
12/29/15 - 2015 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES/MEDIA): Jacobi Owens, Jr., RB... Owens leads the Falcons in rushing for the second straight year with 857 yards.

11/03/15 - The road had not been particularly kind to Air Force prior to Saturday. Despite having yet to hold a lead at any point of their three games away from home this year and making their longest road trip of the season, the Falcons made easy work of host Hawaii 52-7 on a balmy night at Aloha Stadium. Jacobi Owens rushed for 137 yards and two touchdowns on a career-high 30 carries to help Air Force (5-3, 4-1 Mountain West) amass 576 yards of total offense, including a season-high 496 rushing, en route to its first road win of the year. "It's never an easy trip to Hawaii," Falcons coach Troy Calhoun said. "You never know how teams are going to respond, but it showed some maturity on our part. I've seen teams that have just shot themselves in the foot and other teams that have handled it well and we handled it well."
It was the second straight week that Air Force had two ball carriers go over 100 yards in a game. Timothy McVey ran for 113 yards and two late touchdowns. Benton Washington, Karson Roberts and Aubrey Duty-Tyson each recorded a rushing score and Luke Strebel made field goals of 40, 36 and 44 yards. The Falcons ran 92 total offensive plays, which bested its season-high mark of 90 in last week's win over Fresno State. - AP Sports
