Second half starts with bang, and bang

December, 31, 2009
FORT WORTH, Texas --Houston's Tyron Carrier just made history with the first kickoff return for touchdown in Armed Forces Bowl history. Carrier returned the opening kickoff of the second half 79 yards, his second return for a touchdown on the season and fourth of his career.

It took 13 seconds for Houston to cut the Air Force lead to 24-13.

And then it took just 16 seconds more for Air Force to return the favor and reclaim an 18-point lead, 31-13. Jonathan Warzeka returned the ensuing kickoff 100 yards -- the second in Armed Forces Bowl history -- shaking off tackles and then sprinting down the right sideline for Air Force's first kickoff return for touchdown since 1985.
