DeSean Jackson and Robert Jordan had touchdown catches to help California erase a three-touchdown deficit sustained while the starting receivers watched from the sideline -- and the Bears rallied to beat Air Force 42-36 in today's Armed Forces Bowl.

California was ranked Number 2 in the nation in October before losing six of seven games. Still, the Bears were able to tally a sixth straight winning season.

Air Force led 21-0 after scoring twice in a 2-minute span early in the second quarter -- before two key players even got onto the field.

But receiver DeSean Jackson made an acrobatic 40-yard TD catch to cap his first drive, and receiver Robert Jordan had an 18-yard scoring grab in the third quarter.

Jordan finished with six catches for 148 yards, and Jackson caught five passes for 81 yards.

The Air Force Falcons ended the season at 9-and-4.
