Additionally, Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds set an FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) record for career-rushing touchdowns during this season and, if he gets one more, he will tie the Division 1 record that was set in 2006 by Georgia Southern's Adrian Peterson.

Army has won two games as it plays in the second season under coach Jeff Monken. Plus, the team is 8th in the nation in rushing yards per game, and posts a 254-yard average on the ground. Monken took over from Rich Ellerson, who was Army’s coach for its only winning record this century in 2010, but that was followed by an 8-28 record during the next three years. If they lose today, Monken would end up being 6-17 at West Point, which could mean his seat could be up for grabs in 2016.
