Army (2-7) also stopped a 13-game skid in service academy games.
Steelman was injured and did not play against Air Force last season in a 24-14 road loss. He more than made up for that absence on this day in a contest featuring the top two rushing teams in the nation. Steelman, who moved past Glenn Davis into third place all-time in rushing at West Point with 2,983 yards, passed for 100 yards and guided a ground attack that netted 314.
Army entered the game leading the nation in rushing at 383 yards per game, just 17 more than the second-place Falcons
