GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Keenan Reynolds rushed for three touchdowns and threw for two more, and Navy had a season-high 563 total yards in a 56-28 rout of East Carolina on Saturday.
Gee Gee Greene had 131 yards rushing while Reynolds scored on runs of 1, 1 and 2 yards. The Midshipmen quarterback also had TD throws of 15 yards to Casey Bolena and 20 yards to Geoffrey Whiteside while improving to 3-0 as Navy's starter.
Marcus Thomas added a 17-yard touchdown run and Noah Copeland scored from 5 yards out for Navy. The Midshipmen (5-3) rolled up a season-best 512 yards rushing and won their fourth straight.

Vintavious Cooper rushed for 121 yards and a touchdown and Reggie Bullock added two touchdown runs for the Pirates (5-4).
Despite the rainy conditions, fans came out to watch ECU take on Navy Saturday at Dowdy Ficklen Stadium in Greenville.
Navy steamed over ECU 56-28.
Those attending the ECU-Navy football game Saturday had to be prepared for rain and breezy conditions. Umbrellas are not allowed into Dowdy-Ficklen stadium.
With this amount of wind over such an extended period of time, the Greenville area may experience some downed trees and branches, so the university says students and visitors should avoid parking vehicles and walking under trees during this weather event.
ECU says any cancellations or schedule changes will be posted on their website.
