And for the 12th straight year the college football regular season came to an end on Saturday with Navy knocking off Army 34-7 in the wintry conditions at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Navy's 11-game win streak coming into Saturday's game was already the longest in the long history of the series, but extending it to 12 games wasn't the only record the Midshipmen set during the game. With his second rushing touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter, Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds set a single-season record for rushing touchdowns from a quarterback with 28. He'd then add to his record with another touchdown run in the final minute.

Reynolds didn't have a very good day moving the ball through the air in the snow and rain, completing only two of his seven passes for 10 yards, but he did finish with 136 rushing yards and the three touchdowns. 

On the other side of the ball, the Army offense never could get anything going for itself. The Knights finished with only 207 yards of offense and 71 of those yards came on its lone touchdown drive in the third quarter.
