Reynolds leads Navy past Tulane, 31-14
Annapolis, Md. (AP) - Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds ran for a pair of touchdowns and the Midshipmen forced three straight turnovers in the second half for a 31-14 victory over Tulane on Saturday.
Reynolds is now just two shy of the NCAA record for rushing touchdowns set by former Wisconsin tailback Montee Ball (77) from 2009-2012.
Navy (5-1, 3-0 American Athletic Conference) entered the game ranked third nationally with 335.4 yards rushing per game but was held to just 133 as Tulane stacked nine players in the box.
Tulane (2-5, 1-3) got down to Navy's 2-yard line early in the fourth quarter but a fumble by Tanner Lee was recovered by Navy's Will Anthony. It was the 13th straight game the Midshipmen forced a turnover.
Lorentez Barbour had another big defensive play for Navy, intercepting Lee at the Tulane 36. That later set up a 1-yard run by Reynolds.
