Reynolds, Navy Run to 34-7 Win Over Army
Keenan Reynolds ran through steady snow and swirling wind into the NCAA record book and Navy beat Army 34-7 on Saturday for its 12th consecutive victory in the series.
Reynolds scored on touchdown runs of 47 yards, 11 yards and 1 yard. The sophomore has 29 rushing touchdowns, breaking the single-season mark for a quarterback previously held by Ricky Dobbs (Navy, 2009) and Collin Klein (Kansas State, 2011), both of whom had 27.
Reynolds ran 30 times for 136 yards on a frozen, snow-covered field. He also caught a 2-point conversion pass on a trick play following his second touchdown.
Navy (8-4) won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the second consecutive season and ninth time in 11 years. The trophy is awarded to the service academy with the most victories in games between Navy, Army and Air Force.
The Midshipmen haven't lost to Army since 2001 and lead the series 58-49-7. Navy's 12-game run is the longest in the history of the rivalry that began in 1890.
Army (3-9) fumbled five times and was intercepted once in its fifth straight defeat. Embattled coach Rich Ellerson fell to 0-5 against the Midshipmen and 20-41 overall since taking the job in December 2008.
