As a record-breaking season came to a close for No. 21 Navy, it was only fitting that the Midshipmen (11-2) tacked on a few more with a 44-28 Military Bowl win over the Pittsburgh Panthers (8-5) in Annapolis on a cold Monday afternoon.

Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds ran for three touchdowns and tossed another on the way to eclipsing Louisiana Tech's Kenneth Dixon as the NCAA record-holder for career touchdowns (88). Reynolds, who finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting and was named the Military Bowl MVP, remarkably ended the game as Navy's leader in passing (126), rushing (144) and receiving (47) yards.

Reynolds became the sixth quarterback in NCAA history to run and pass for 4,000 yards in his career. He also broke the FBS record for most career rushing yards by a quarterback.

Navy's victory marked the sixth time in 2015--and 15th time since 2013--that it scored at least 40 points. The win marks the 11th victory of the season, the most in the program's 135-year history.
