Temple Zeroes in on MAC Crown
For the second consecutive week, the Owls defense pitched a shutout. It’s the first time that Temple has posted back to back shutouts since 1971 where they blanked Uconn and Xavier. The Owls extended their home winning streak to ten.
It took a half before the Owls got the offense going. Temple scored just six points before the intermission. In the 2nd half, the Owls exploded for 24 points. Bernard Pierce rushed for a measly 22 yards on nine carries in the first 30 minutes. In the second stanza, Pierce carried it 10 times for 61 yards. This is what good teams do, they put bad teams away early on in the 2nd half.
The run defense was very stout once again holding the Zips to just 20 yards on the ground.
There’s really not much more to say other than it was another nice win for Temple. The Owls are off to Kent State this weekend.
