ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Keenan Reynolds wrapped up his record-setting college career at Navy in spectacular fashion, running for three touchdowns and throwing for another Monday to lead the Midshipmen past Pittsburgh 44-28 in the Military Bowl.

Reynolds ran for 144 yards on 24 carries, completed 9 of 17 passes for 126 yards and had a reception for 47 yards on a trick play.

The 5-foot-11 senior leaves Navy (11-2) as the NCAA career leader with 88 touchdowns and 530 points. His 4,559 yards rushing are the most by a quarterback in NCAA history.

Qadree Ollison rushed for 73 yards and scored two touchdowns for Pitt. Nate Peterman threw a TD pass but was intercepted three times.

It all added up to a disappointing ending for the Panthers (8-5) in their first season under coach Pat Narduzzi.

Navy’s 11th win is the first time the Midshipmen have reached the feat in the 135 year history of the program.
