ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - - Kriss Proctor passed for 132 yards and touchdown in Navy's 35-34 loss to Air Force on Saturday.

Tim Jefferson ran for a 1-yard touchdown in overtime and Parker Herrington added the conversion to give Air Force the win, a significant first step in the Falcons' bid to retain the coveted Commander-in-Chief's Trophy.

Air Force blew an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter and allowed a touchdown to Navy to begin the overtime. But the Midshipmen were penalized for an excessive celebration, and Jon Teague's long conversion attempt failed.

The Falcons (3-1) then moved quickly into position for the game-winning score. Air Force has beaten Navy (2-2) twice in a row following seven straight defeats.

Air Force needs only to beat Army on Nov. 5 to keep the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy, which represents superiority among the three service academies. If the teams all finish 1-1 in the round-robin competition, the previous winner holds onto the prize.
