Pirates can't keep up with Navy
Keenan Reynolds rushed for three touchdowns and threw for two more, and Navy had a season-high 563 total yards in a 56-28 rout of East Carolina on Saturday.
Gee Gee Greene had 131 yards rushing while Reynolds scored on runs of 1, 1 and 2 yards. The Midshipmen quarterback also had TD throws of 15 yards to Casey Bolena and 20 yards to Geoffrey Whiteside while improving to 3-0 as Navy's starter.
Marcus Thomas added a 17-yard touchdown run and Noah Copeland scored from 5 yards out for Navy. The Midshipmen (5-3) rolled up a season-best 512 yards rushing and won their fourth straight.
