While his team lost an opportunity to play in the American Athletic Conference's title game, Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds made some history during Friday's 52-31 loss to Houston. 

With a four-yard rushing touchdown with 6:46 left in the game, he tied former Wisconsin running back Montee Ball for most career touchdowns in FBS history with 83, per SportsCenter

Reynolds had a career day in the loss, passing for 312 yards and another touchdown. It was the first time in his career that he had a game of 250 passing yards or more. 

Playing in a run-heavy offense, Reynolds recorded 84 yards on the ground Friday, the third straight season in which he's eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark. He is also one rushing touchdown away from a third consecutive season of 20 or more scores. In his sophomore season in 2013, Reynolds led the nation with 31 rushing touchdowns. 

While he's garnered some talk about being in the running for the Heisman Trophy, it sounds like he isn't sure if he'll be pursuing football after college, as he told Jay Mohr on Fox Sports Radio:

Regardless of what happens after his college playing career, though, Reynolds has been one of the most explosive players in college football over the past three years.

He helped put Navy back on the national map, leading the team to a No. 15 ranking before the loss to Houston. A win against Army on December 12 would ensure Navy's first 10-win season since 2009, and just its third since 1905.
