One week after snapping the nation's longest losing streak, Army has its first winning streak in seven years.

Carlton Jones ran for 225 yards and five touchdowns and Army rallied to beat South Florida 42-35 Saturday night to win consecutive games for the first time since 1997.

Army (2-4, 2-3 Conference USA) snapped a school-record 19-game losing streak with a 48-29 win over Cincinnati on Oct. 9. The Black Knights last won consecutive games in 1997, when they beat Rutgers and Colgate.

``We're starting on a streak,'' Jones said. ``That's all we're doing. This feels good.''

Army also snapped a nine-game road losing streak and ended a 12-game losing streak in night road games that dated to a 41-14 victory at Kansas State in 1987.

``I don't know how long it's been, but I'm just glad we got two in a row,'' Army coach Bobby Ross said. ``We're a team, we've got to take them one at a time. We've got to take it almost a minute at a time. That's the way we're going to continue to do it.''

Army's Zac Dahman was 16-for-27 for 202 yards and one touchdown.

South Florida quarterback Pat Julmiste scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter to give the Bulls a 21-7 lead. He completed 10 of 23 passes for 116 yards and rushed for 90 yards on 20 carries.

USF's second-largest home crowd of 36,549 was in attendance for a disappointing homecoming game. The Bulls have lost two straight home games after winning 24 of 26.

``There are a lot of guys hurting in the locker room,'' South Florida coach Jim Leavitt said. ``It's one of the toughest losses we've had ... not because it's Army. I want to tell you right now, Army is a good football team. We were two touchdowns up and usually when we are in that position we do a pretty good job. But we didn't. That's why it makes it tough.''

Jones scored on a 59-yard run and Army closed within 21-14 midway through the third. After Julmiste scored on a 19-yard run, Jones ran 74 yards for another score and Army trailed 28-20. Austin Miller had his extra-point attempt blocked.

Army tied the game at 28-all with 12:21 left in the fourth quarter when Jones scored on a 6-yard run and added the two-point conversion.

Jones gave Army a 35-28 lead on a 13-yard scoring run and added the eventual winning TD from 1 yard with 2:24 left, giving Army a 42-28 lead.

``We got our mind-set the second half,'' Jones said. ``We were determined not to let them stop us, no matter what they did.''

Joe Bain caught a 43-yard scoring pass from Julmiste to pull South Florida within 42-35 with just over a minute left. Army recovered the ensuing onside kick and ran out the clock.

``It was a nice win,'' Ross said. ``It was a nice way to get it ... we came back.''

Andre Hall had 200 yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns for South Florida (2-3, 1-2).
