Navy senior quarterback Keenan Reynolds made history Saturday by setting the record for most career rushing touchdowns in Division I football.

Reynolds tied the mark at 84 with a 58-yard effort in the first quarter against rival Army and then moved into first place all by himself with a one-yard plunge in the second, according to SportsCenter.

The veteran signal-caller surpassed both Georgia Southern's Adrian Peterson and Towson's Terrance West to set the record.

CBS Sports provided video of Reynolds' historic touchdown as he bulled his way into the end zone, and he put the Midshipmen on top in the process:

Keenan Reynolds is a very hard man to stop. He muscled his way to ANOTHER TD in this @USAA highlight. #ArmyNavy https://t.co/d9gJlOTgz0

Reynolds is in the midst of a remarkable campaign, as his second touchdown run of the day gave him 21 on the season to go along with six passing scores.

He was not named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy despite his production for a ranked Navy team, and Pete Gilbert of WBAL TV is one of many who believe he earned the right to be in New York:

I will forever remain incapable of understanding why Keenan Reynolds is not going to NY. He's earned it. Heisman Trust should be ashamed.

While the Antioch, Tennessee, native may have been snubbed, setting the all-time rushing touchdown record is an esteemed consolation prize.

Doing it against Army likely made it that much sweeter, as it is a moment those who follow service academy football won't soon forget.
