FORT WORTH, Texas- Keenan Reynolds ran for two more touchdowns and Navy won for only the second time its last seven bowl games, beating Middle Tennessee State 24-6 in the Armed Forces Bowl on Monday.

Reynolds had a 3-yard score to cap the opening drive for Navy (9-4), and added a 1-yarder in the fourth quarter.

Already with the NCAA record for touchdowns rushing by a quarterback, Reynolds upped his total to 31 to match Colorado State running back Kapri Bibbs, also a sophomore, for the national lead this season.

Middle Tennessee (8-5) was held to a season-low for points. The Blue Raiders finished the regular season with a five-game winning streak, averaging nearly 43 points a game in that stretch.

The Midshipmen overcame two fumbles inside the 20 by Reynolds, their first turnovers in six games, and won their fifth straight game.
