Wisconsin legend Montee Ball's rushing touchdown record broken by Navy QB Keenan Reynolds

The record didn't last for too long, but it was fun while it did!

One of the most criminally underrated players in college football achieved a monumental milestone on Saturday, as Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds rushed for four touchdowns, breaking former Wisconsin Badger Montee Ball's NCAA rushing touchdown record. Ball previously held the record with 78 career scores.

Reynolds now has the current record at 81 touchdowns, but will also have the rest of this season to continue to add to that number.

Sure, it would have been cool to see Ball's record stand for a longer period of time, but it couldn't have been broken by a better player or a better person. Reynolds is one of the most entertaining players in college football, and a beloved figure for Navy fans and college football fans, alike.

Capturing this record is the perfect way to bring his college career to an end. However, he's not done just yet, because he has Navy on the verge of a New Year's Six Bowl with the way he's playing right now.

Montee Ball took to Twitter to congratulate Reynolds.

Ball went on to retweet various articles about Reynolds, so I think it's fair to say that he's very happy for him. The record was fun while it lasted, Montee.

On behalf of the entire Badger nation, congratulations on an amazing achievement, Keenan.
