Midshipmen Clobber Cadets in Annual Army-Navy Game
It was snowing in Philadelphia on Saturday. Grant it not the snow that the Lions and Eagles played in last Sunday, but it was snowing. However, that didn’t stop the Navy from continuing its dominance over the Army in the annual gridiron classic.
Behind quarterback Keenan Reynolds, who made his way into the NCAA record books, Navy beat Army 34-7. The win extends Navy’s winning streak to 12-straight over Army. Reynolds ran for 136-yards on 47 and scored three touchdowns. He has 29 rushing touchdowns which breaks the single-season mark for a college quarterback. The old record of 27 was held by Ricky Dobbs (Navy 2009) and Collin Klein (Kansas State 2011).
The first Army–Navy Game was played in 1890 and has been held at several locations throughout its history, but has most frequently been played in Philadelphia, roughly equidistant from the two academies. Navy leads the all-time series with a record of 58 wins, 49 losses, and seven ties.
