McVey rushed for 139 yards, Ronald Cleveland had 118 yards on eight carries and Taven Birdow added 100 yards for Air Force (3-4, 2-2 Mountain West). Each player scored a rushing touchdown and Arion Worthman added 92 yards and two TDs. The Falcons gained 550 yards on 91 carries.
"We were moving the ball and if it came down to a last second score, (we knew) it was going to be us, and we weren't going to let them score," Cleveland said.
Air Force's dominant rushing game helped hold the ball for 41 minutes, 20 seconds, including a 20-play drive that lasted nearly 10 minutes in the second half.
"For us, being able to move the sticks helps us stay on the field," Air Force coach Troy Calhoun said. "We got to execute better. We had a number of balls on the ground and our perimeter execution has to be better. But we found a way."
"They executed well," Nevada coach Jay Norvell said. "It's a very unique style of offense that you don't play very often. They did a great job of executing it without throwing the ball very much."
Nevada hasn't surrendered more than 500 rushing yards in a game in two decades.
