Recap: Temple vs. Navy

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Keenan Reynolds rushed for 173 yards and two touchdowns as the Navy Midshipmen held on for a 31-24 victory over the Temple Owls at Lincoln Financial Field.

Navy (1-1) finished with 487 yards rushing as a team. Noah Copeland had 84 yards on 12 carries, Chris Swain added 70 yards and Geoffrey Whiteside tallied 60 yards and a score on only six attempts.

Kenneth Harper had 55 yards on 13 carries and also added 65 yards on eight receptions. Jalen Fitzpatrick finished with 59 yards and a touchdown on five catches.

Temple scored the first points of the game, although it came on odd circumstances. Reynolds was stopped behind the line of scrimmage and fumbled the ball into the end zone where Sharif Finch then recovered it for a touchdown.

Temple did not go into the break quietly. Walker threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Romond Deloatch with three seconds left in the second quarter.

Navy began to pull away later in the frame when DeBrandon Sanders broke away for a 24-yard touchdown run.

A 28-yard field goal from Austin Jones late in the fourth quarter kept the Owls within striking distance.

Walker threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Fitzpatrick early in the fourth quarter to pull the Owls to within a touchdown. However, they were never able to even the score, failing to find the end zone on their final drive.
