FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Haaziq Daniels had a short scoring run and threw a touchdown pass in Air Force's 30-15 victory over Baylor on Thursday night in cold conditions in the Armed Forces Bowl.

The game kicked off with a temperature of 13 degrees and a wind chill of minus 4 at Amon G. Carter Stadium, the home of TCU, Baylor's Big 12 rival. Baylor officials announced it was the coldest kickoff temperature in the history of the program.

Daniels had a 2-yard touchdown run and a 15-yard scored pass out of Air Force's run-oriented triple-option offense.

Brad Roberts rushed for two touchdowns, and Matthew Dapore had a 37-yard field goal for the Falcons.

Roberts ran for 116 yards, his school-record 20th career game with triple-digit rushing yardage.
