Navy vs. Central Michigan score update: Midshipmen extend lead to 31-13 after three

After a lackluster second quarter allowed the Central Michigan Chippewas to pull within a touchdown, the Navy Midshipmen scored two touchdowns in the third quarter on Friday night to extend their lead to 31-13 going into the fourth.

Before Navy got back on the board, though, the Chippewas added a field goal to make the score 17-13, but that was all they would get in the third. With 4:08 left in the quarter, Prentice Christian rushed into the endzone from two yards out to make the score 24-13. Then, less than two minutes later, freshman quarterback Keenan Reynolds struck with a 41-yard touchdown pass to Gee Gee Greene -- it was Reynolds' third touchdown pass of the night, and second to Greene.

Through three quarters, Reynolds has amassed 134 yards passing and 72 yards on the ground. Greene has caught two passes for 60 yards to go with 39 yards rushing. The Navy defense, meanwhile, has held the Chippewas to just 211 yards of offense.
