Monday December 28th, 2015

Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds set the records for most rushing yards by a quarterback and most career rushing touchdowns during the Military Bowl against Pittsburgh on Monday.

Navy won the game 44–28, its third straight bowl win. Reynolds finished the game with 144 rushing yards and three touchdowns, 126 passing yards and one touchdown through the air. He also caught a pass for 47 yards. 

Reynolds originally set the touchdown record during the Army vs. Navy game, reaching 85 for his career. The mark was passed one week later by Louisiana Tech running back Kenneth Dixon. Reynolds reclaimed first-place on the list with his third rushing touchdown Monday. 

Reynolds passed famed scramblers Pat White and Denard Robinson for the rushing yards by a quarterback record, having now run for over 4,518 yards in his career.
