Navy Knocks Off FAU 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 carries.

Wallace briefly left the game with about 12 minutes remaining with an apparent left arm injury, but later returned.
