ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Keenan Reynolds ran for 126 yards and three touchdowns, and Navy used a strong second half to beat Air Force28-10 Saturday in a game that survived the restrictions of the U.S. government shutdown.
Although the Department of Defense has suspended athletic competition at the nation's service academies because of the shutdown, an exception was made for this event because it was funded by non-appropriated money.
On a magnificent fall afternoon, a record crowd of 38,225 filled Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium for this pivotal matchup. The previous 16 winners of this game have gone on to win the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, awarded annually to the service academy with the best record in games involving Air Force, Navy and Army.
Navy (3-1) has won the trophy twice in a row, and now the Midshipmen are poised to do it again after outscoring Air Force 21-0 after halftime.
