Topic - Keenan Reynolds
Keenan Reynolds ran for two more touchdowns and Navy won for only the second time its last seven bowl games, beating Middle Tennessee State 24-6 on Monday.
The teams playing in the Armed Forces Bowl on Monday have 8-4 records and average about 415 total yards a game, though the Midshipmen gain most of their yards on the ground with their triple option while the Blue Raiders are basically 50-50. Both have extended winning streaks after midseason slumps.
Make it an even dozen for the Midshipmen.
Keenan Reynolds ran through steady snow and swirling wind into the NCAA record book, helping Navy beat Army 34-7 on Saturday for its 12th consecutive victory in the series.
Reynolds finished with a career-high 226 yards on 28 carries. He now has 18 rushing touchdowns on the season, one behind Colorado State running back Kapri Bibbs for most in the nation. With the victory, Navy (5-4) is just a win away from qualifying for a bowl game for the 11th time in 12 years.
Jaylon Smith and Eilar Hardy combined to snuff out an end-around by Navy's Shawn Lynch on fourth-and-4 in Irish territory, and Notre Dame held on 38-34 Saturday.
One week after missing an extra point in the second overtime that cost his team, Navy kicker Nick Sloan redeemed himself Saturday against Pittsburgh. Sloan booted a 30-yard field-goal as time expired that gave the Midshipmen a 24-21 victory over the Panthers.
Quarterback Keenan Reynolds' fumble in the second quarter was returned for a 68-yard touchdown and then Nick Sloan missed an extra point in the second overtime that gave the Rockets the opening they needed.
The Midshipmen had as many turnovers as they had in their three other games — combined. They kept drawing penalty flags but their offense couldn't get anything going in the second half.
Navy managed only 65 yards total offense in the second half with Reynolds on the sideline wearing a ball cap, and Western Kentucky beat the Midshipmen for the first time in three tries 19-7 on Saturday.
Keenan Reynolds rushed for 127 yards and three touchdowns, leading Navy to a 41-35 season-opening victory Saturday at Indiana. The Midshipmen (1-0) played almost flawlessly, finishing with 444 yards rushing, no turnovers, five penalties and only three carries for negative yards.
Always kidding, always joking, Navy wide receiver Brandon Turner put on his most serious face recently as he approached Danny O'Rourke, his old position coach.
Still digesting his team's 1-3 start, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo stepped onto a practice field just a short walk from the banks of the Severn River in early October.
It would've been easy for the Navy Midshipmen to get complacent Saturday. Easy for them to look past Texas State and dwell on their next game against Army. Easy for them to remember that their trip to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl has already been booked.
Quarterback Keenan Reynolds deftly handled nearly everything presented to him during his sensational debut season at Navy, rarely looking like a freshman along the way.
"Coming into the game, I wasn't too concerned about the record. If I broke it, I broke it. If not, oh well," Reynolds said. "My main concern was trying to get the W. If that involved me getting zero touchdowns and everyone else having a field day, I was good with that."
"He's definitely the leader," Singleton said about Reynolds.
