Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds made Senior Day a memorable one.

Reynolds, playing in front of 20th-ranked Navy's home crowd in Annapolis for the final time, broke the FBS record for career rushing touchdowns Saturday, scoring in the first quarter against SMU on a 4-yard run for his 78th career touchdown on the ground.

Reynolds broke the record that had been held by Montee Ball, who had 77 rushing scores for Wisconsin from 2009-12. Ball still holds the FBS record for most total touchdowns in a career with 83.

Later in the first half, Reynolds added TD runs of 43 and 8 yards and threw a 72-yard touchdown pass to put the Midshipmen up 28-0. He added a fourth rushing score, a 32-yarder, in the fourth quarter and finished with 137 rushing yards for the game, which the Midshipmen won 55-14.


Reynolds also holds the NCAA records for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback, single-season rushing touchdowns by a quarterback (31) and most games scoring at least three TDs (15). He also is Navy's all-time wins leader with 29 victories and needs just 66 yards to break Napoleon McCallum’s school career rushing record (4,179).

A four-year starter for the Midshipmen, Reynolds scored 10 rushing touchdowns as a freshman, 31 as a sophomore and 23 has a junior. He now has 17 this season.
