TO THE ACTION?
Despite only running three offensive plays in the opening quarter, Temple held the Bulls scoreless with the squads moving to quarter two with a 0-0 game.
THINGS BREAK LOOSE
Jaren Mangham. (152 yards, 2 TDs) capped a 19 play 80-yard drive with a one-yard plunge. DeMarcus Gregory hauled in a 4-yard pass from Timmy McClain to push it 14-0. USF would score on six consecutive possessions. Temple closed the gap with Randle Jones hauling in a D’ Wan Mathis pass and converting it into a 70-yard touchdown that made it 14-7.
Spencer Shrader booted a field to end the half at 17-7. Edward Sydee scampered for a 1-yard touchdown and Temple had life.
Save that thought. Kelly Joiner Jr. (126 yards, 1 TD), and Mangham each had a rushing touchdown. Another mind-boggling stat. FSU held the ball for 13:26 of the fourth quarter. Mathis went 12 of 21 for 183 yards, 2 picks, and added 22 yards rushing for the Owls.
Jones had four catches for 100 yards.
“It was just details, our fundamentals, and making sure we were executing at a high level,” said Temple linebacker William Kwenkeu. “We didn’t do that. They didn’t do any trick plays. It was just tackling from the defensive side of the ball. They just kept running the ball.” We got beat bad,” said Temple Coach Rod Carey. “It’s the only way to put it. They took it to us tonight.” Temple loses to South Florida, 34-14
