Navy's Keenan Reynolds sets FBS QB record with 7 rushing TDs in game

During Friday night’s thrilling triple-overtime game between Navy and San Diego State, Midshpmen quarterback Keenan Reynolds was able to break the FBS single-game rushing touchdown record for a quarterback.

Reynolds was able to find the endzone a whopping seven times as he helped to lead Navy to the big win.

The seven touchdowns broke the record previously held by Air Force’s Dee Dowis and Navy’s Craig Candeto.

On the season, Reynolds has found the endzone on the ground 26 times, which leaves him one short of the all-time record. The current record of 27 is currently held by fellow Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs and Kansas State’s Collin Klein.

While Reynolds now holds the quarterback rushing record, the most FBS record holder for most touchdowns in a game remains  Illinois’ Howard Griffith, who set the record in 1990.

Reynolds was also able to secure another achievement on Friday night with his 246 yard, 7 touchdown performance on the ground by becoming just the fourth quarterback in the academy’s history to throw and rush for 1,000 yards in a season.
