Monday's Armed Forces Bowl wasn't much for drama, as Navy used a series of late-game touchdowns and interceptions of Logan Kilgore to turn a close game at halftime into a 24-6 rout that arguably wasn't even that close.

But it was a memorable day all the same for Navy sophomore quarterback Keenan Reynolds, who entered the game with 29 rushing touchdowns and needed just one to become the fourth FBS player ever -- and the first quarterback -- to rush for 30 touchdowns in a season.

Most Rushing TDs in Season
TD Player, Team Year
37 Barry Sanders, Okla. State 1988
33 Montee Ball, Wisconsin 2011
31 Keenan Reynolds, Navy 2013
31 Kapri Bibbs, Colorado State 2013

Reynolds got his 30th on Navy's first drive of the game and added a second for good measure in the fourth quarter, tying Colorado State's Kapri Bibbs (who hit 31 touchdowns in the Rams' bowl win just eight days ago) for the third-highest total of all-time, six off the record held by Barry Sanders.

"He's our engine," Navy coach Ken Niumatololo said in his postgame interview. "Everything we do goes through him. Heck of a kid, wonderful quarterback. We're glad he's coming back for two more years."

Reynolds finished the season with 1,346 rushing yards, 31 rushing touchdowns, 1,057 passing yards, an 8-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio, and 39 total touchdowns.
