Reynolds rallies Navy past Florida Atlantic 24-17

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Keenan Reynolds ran for 159 yards and a
touchdown and threw two scoring passes to Brandon Turner,
helping Navy beat Florida Atlantic 24-17 on Saturday for its
fifth straight victory.

By winning in their first game against the Owls (2-7), the
Midshipmen (6-3) earned a spot in the Dec. 29 Kraft Fight Hunger
Bowl in San Francisco, where they will face a Pac-12 opponent.
It will be the ninth bowl appearance in 10 years for Navy.

Reynolds completed 8 of 15 passes for 147 yards, as the
Midshipmen rallied from a 10-0 deficit by scoring on four
consecutive possessions.

But Navy had to hold on after Jonathan Wallace's second
touchdown of the game, a 3-yard fourth-quarter scamper, got the
Owls within seven points. Wallace finished with 111 yards on 28

Since taking over as Navy's starting quarterback four games ago,
Reynolds has passed for eight touchdowns and run for four more.
He briefly left the game with about 12 minutes remaining with an
apparent left arm injury, but later returned.

Graham Wilbert completed 25 of 35 passes for 205 yards for
Florida Atlantic.

Navy's five-game winning streak is its first since 2009.

Wilbert connected on nine of his first 10 passes, helping the
Owls take a 7-0 lead on a methodical 15-play drive that featured
only one play longer than nine yards and chewed nearly eight
minutes off the clock. Wallace scored on a right-side run from 1
yard out on the second play of the second quarter.

Mitch Anderson sneaked a low, 53-yard kick over the crossbar for
a 10-0 lead, tying Mark Myers' record set in 2003 for the
longest field goal in school history.

A 48-yard run by Reynolds finally breathed some life into the
Navy offense by moving the ball to Florida Atlantic's 33-yard
line. Four plays later, Reynolds found Turner cutting through
the left side of the end zone for a 14-yard touchdown pass.

On the next possession, the Owls turned the ball over on downs
at Navy's 15, and the Midshipmen needed only 2:03 to go ahead
14-10 on Reynolds' 1-yard keeper with 7 seconds left in the
first half.

On the opening drive of the second half, Navy marched 67 yards
on nine plays, capped by a 31-yard strike from Reynolds to

On the ensuing drive, Navy's Kwazel Bertrand recovered a fumble
by Damian Fortner at midfield, and the Midshipmen turned the
turnover into a 20-yard field goal by Nick Sloan for a 24-10
lead with 2:08 remaining in the third quarter.

After Reynolds departed with the apparent left arm injury,
backup quarterback Trey Miller fumbled on his first play, with
the Owls' Trevon Coley recovering. It took Florida Atlantic
seven plays to cut the lead to 24-17 on Wallace's 3-yard TD run.

Reynolds returned for Navy's next series and drove the
Midshipmen to the Owls' 34, where Sloan missed a 51-yard field
goal try. Florida Atlantic then got as far as the Navy 22, where
Wilbert's fourth-down pass fell incomplete.
