Temple tops South Florida 37-28
TEMPLE 37, SOUTH FLORIDA 28

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Marcus Green blocked a late field goal
attempt and Montel Harris scored two touchdowns to lead Temple
to a 37-28 victory over South Florida in a Big East Conference
matchup on Saturday.



The game marked Temple's re-entry into the Big East after the
Owls were kicked out of the conference in 2004.



Temple snapped a two-game losing skid with the victory,
improving to 2-2 overall and 1-0 in the Big East. After South
Florida opened the season with a pair of victories, the loss was
the Bulls' fourth-straight defeat, dropping them to 2-4 overall
and 0-2 in the conference.



"I thought our kids were scratching, and fighting and clawing
and not relenting, and had two losses against two good football
teams, and our kids never blinked," Temple coach Steve Addazio
said. "This is a great win for our program. It's an emotional
win. It's Temple back in the Big East Conference, our first Big
East game making a statement that our program is headed in the
right direction and we'll be a valued member in this
conference."



Harris, a transfer from Boston College, erupted for a
season-best 133 yards on 24 carries and two fourth-quarter
touchdowns.



Temple's Chris Coyer was a very efficient 16 for 20 for 167
yards, throwing for one touchdown and scoring the first TD of
the game on a 24-yard run on the Owls' first possession.



"It was a great team effort, and my offensive line opened up
some holes, but it was a great team win, and it was in the back
of my mind that I wasn't able to show people how good I could
play," said Harris, who had been hampered by a hamstring injury
that limited him to 15 carries for 35 yards in two games. "I
think this says we're not just a team everyone can run over. I
would say I think this week I felt my leg getting back to
normal."



South Florida was in position to take the lead late in the
fourth quarter. But on third-and-one at the Temple 23, with
around 1:30 left to play, Demetri Murray went wide and was
pulled down by Temple linebacker Tyler Matakevich, a true
freshman who had a team-high 15 tackles, for a five-yard loss.



That forced Bulls' kicker Maikon Bonani to try a 45-yard field
goal, which was batted down by Green and picked up by Anthony
Robey, who advanced the ball to the South Florida 35. Harris
closed a strong day by taking a handoff 35 yards for a touchdown
on the following play to seal Temple's victory with 1:03 left.



"We had an inside play called initially," said South Florida
coach Skip Holtz, whose quarterback, B.J. Daniels, had limited
mobility due to a sore ankle. "We had some success running up
the middle, we just didn't execute it. It wasn't the play call
at all. It was the execution. We played a great game and we're
all hurting a little bit. But I've yet to see anyone throw their
arms up and put their heads in the sand. I think there's a lot
left to play."
