It appeared that two players crashed into Halliday after he threw a pass late in the first quarter. The senior writhed on the ground, was strapped onto a stretcher, and driven off the field in a cart. Washington State officials did not immediately disclose the extent of Halliday's injury. Halliday was replaced by freshman Luke Falk. Coming into the game, Halliday led the nation with 3,833 passing yards. He had 32 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. Halliday had thrown for 40 yards and an interception against Southern California when he was injured. --- CIC TROPHY With the prized hardware there for the taking, Air Force seized the moment and reigns supreme again among the three service academies. Kale Pearson hit tight end Garrett Griffin for a 54-yard touchdown early in the third quarter to break open a tense game, Will Conant kicked three field goals, and Air Force beat Army 23-6 to win the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for a record 19th time. The victory also made Air Force (6-2) eligible for the postseason. The Falcons have won five of six, including a triumph over Navy, which put them in position to capture the trophy on Saturday. The Falcons beat Navy 30-21 a month ago. Army (2-6) hasn't captured the coveted hardware since it won its sixth in 1996. --- NUMBERS 11-Straight possessions No. 12 Baylor scored on in a 60-14 victory over Kansas. 18-Consecutive losses by Columbia. 19-Straight wins by Michigan over Indiana. 34-Consecutive losses to ranked opponents by Temple before knocking off No. 21 East Carolina 20-10. 4,051-Career rushing yards by Northern Iowa's David Johnson, breaking the school record by Corey Lewis, who ran for 4,003 yards from 2005-2008. --- GATOR CHOMP Florida coach Will Muschamp reached over his shoulder and said ''let me lift this thing off my back.'' He probably should have used both hands. After all, this was a big win and an even bigger relief for Muschamp and the Gators. Matt Jones and Kelvin Taylor combined for 389 yards rushing and four touchdowns and Florida upset ninth-ranked Georgia 38-20, ending a three-game losing streak in the series and quite possibly saving Muschamp's job.
