AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Tommy Rees showed no signs of a strained neck that knocked him out a week ago, throwing a career-high five touchdown passes to help Notre Dame rout Air Force 45-10 on Saturday.

The senior was on target all day, completing 17 of 22 passes for 284 yards as the Fighting Irish (6-2) won their third straight. Rees now has 54 career TD passes and moves past Ron Powlus for third place in team history.

Rees was back on the field a week after leaving the game with a neck ailment in the second half of a win over USC. Rees was solid all week in practice and sensational on Saturday as he picked apart the secondary of the Falcons (1-7), who dropped their seventh straight game.

Rees spread the ball around as he tossed TD strikes to Corey Robinson, William Fuller, Ben Koyack, TJ Jones and Chris Brown.
