On Saturday, the Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen faced off against each other on the football field for the 116th time, and a new college football record was set in the process. Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds ran for two touchdowns in the first half, tying and then breaking the career record for most collegiate career rushing touchdowns:

Reynolds has one of the most unique statistical profiles in college football history. Although he is listed as Navy’s quarterback, he entered Saturday’s game with more than twice as many career rushing attempts (932) as career passing attempts (431). Reynolds also has more career rushing yards (4,279) as he does career passing yards (3,762). Although Reynolds has a relatively low career completion percentage (52.7%), he has only eight career interceptions, which is among the fewest for college quarterbacks in this century who have attempted at least 400 passes.
Navy was ranked as high as 16th in the AP Polls this season, their first appearance in the Top 25 since 2004. Army has not won the annual match-up since 2001.
