Junior safety Jon Davis was named the Mountain West Conference’s defensive player of the week, the first time he has received that honor.
He had a team-high six tackles against Wyoming, including one for loss, a big interception on the first drive of the game in the end zone, and somehow came away with a fourth-quarter fumble recovery on what ended up being Wyoming’s last offensive play. Air Force ran out the clock after Davis’ recovery. Falcons coach Troy Calhoun said when he watched the film of the game Sunday, he was surprised Davis was the one that eventually got the ball.
“He was the last one in the pile,” Calhoun said.
