A dominant second quarter by Navy's Keenan Reynolds wasn't enough to break the will of the Trojans, who held off Keenan Reynolds & Co. to win 41-31.
Troy's passing attack was impressively efficient, totaling 415 yards on 34 of 40 passing. Navy got as close as 31-28 on a 59-yard touchdown run by Gee Gee Greene, but Troy's persistent attack put away the Midshipmen in the fourth quarter.
After falling behind 21-0 early in the second quarter, Navy's elite ground game came alive in the second quarter. Reynolds torched the Trojan defense for three touchdowns to close out the first half and get Navy within 28-21. Reynolds finished the day with 289 yards, 130 of them on the ground. But the Trojans shored up their from in the second half, with the run by Greene as their lone indiscretion. With just over three minutes in the game, Will Scott kicked a field goal to put the game out of reach. Navy falls to 6-4 on the season, while Troy has moved to .500 overall with a record of 5-5.
