Senior tailback Tim McVey insisted he didn't know about Air Force's lengthy scoring streak.
He does now.
Army ended Air Force’s 306-game scoring streak with a 21-0 win on Saturday. Air Force had the fifth-longest scoring streak all-time in the FBS before Army’s swarming defense ended it. The last time the Falcons were held scoreless was by Mississippi in the 1992 Liberty Bowl.
It was the first time the Falcons were shut out at home since Nov. 1, 1980, against Boston College.
"You don't want that," McVey said. "It (stinks). Nothing you can do about it."

Here's a look at the top five all-time scoring streaks in FBS:
1. Florida _ 369 (1988-present)
2. Michigan _ 364 (1984-2014 and ended by Notre Dame)
3. Brigham Young _ 361 (1975-2003 and ended by Utah)
4. TCU _ 314 (1991-present).
5. Air Force _ 306 (start of 1993 season and ended by Army)
"It's a credit to how well they played defense and we didn't play well offensively," Air Force coach Troy Calhoun said. "We didn't play well enough in any facet."
