Posted: Updated:

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Quinn Kaehler threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter and Donnel Pumphrey scored on a 10-yard run with 1:39 remaining, helping San Diego State rally for a 27-20 victory over Air Force on Thursday night in a contest that was played despite the partial government shutdown.

Down by 14 heading into the fourth quarter, the Aztecs (3-3, 2-0 Mountain West) scored 21 straight points to escape with the win after missing two extra points and a field goal. San Diego State is 2-151-1 in program history when trailing by 14 or more points in the final quarter.

Kaehler finished 15 of 26 for 249 yards and three touchdowns. Pumphrey had 117 yards rushing along with another 43 receiving and a score.

Backup Nate Romine scored on a 16-yard run and threw a 71-yard TD pass for the Falcons (1-6, 0-5) in a game they didn't know would even be staged until it was given the official go-ahead about 27 hours before kickoff.
