Reynolds ran the ball 168 times for 791 yards and 13 touchdowns entering Saturday. Most of his scores on the ground came in the last two seasons, as Reynolds ran for 54 touchdowns from 2013–14.
Reynolds’s most explosive game on the ground this season came in September, when he ran for five scores against East Carolina.
