AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) -- Wes Cobb scored twice on short runs and Cody Getz rushed for 125 yards as Air Force beat Hawaii 21-7 on Friday night to become bowl eligible.

The Falcons (6-5, 5-2 Mountain West) are headed to a postseason game for the sixth straight season under coach Troy Calhoun. The team accepted a bid to the Armed Forces Bowl after the game.

Air Force didn't even attempt a pass all night, relying on a ground game that's ranked second in the country. The Falcons finished with 338 yards rushing.

Jeremy Higgins made his first start for Hawaii and directed a scoring drive to open the game. But the Warriors (1-9, 0-7) struggled after that as they lost for an eighth straight time, the second-longest skid in school history. Hawaii's record is 19 straight losses from 1997-99.

Getz had another big night, eclipsing the 100-yard mark for the sixth time this season. The diminutive back had a 5-yard TD run early in the third quarter to break a 7-7 tie.
