BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Keenan Reynolds rushed for 127 yards and three touchdowns, leading Navy to a 41-35 season-opening victory Saturday at Indiana.
The Midshipmen (1-0) played almost flawlessly, finishing with 444 yards rushing, no turnovers, five penalties and only three carries for negative yards.
Navy has now won 20 games over BCS foes since 2003 - the most of any non-BCS school in the nation during that span.
For Indiana (1-1), it was a huge deflation after a 73-35 victory over Indiana State.
But as the Hoosiers continued to score, the defense was confounded by Navy's ground game and never even forced a punt.
Navy scored on its first three possessions, taking a 17-0 lead. Reynolds scored on runs of 1, 2 and 1 yard as the Midshipmen fended off Indiana's rallies.
