Yes, it finally happened. The Temple Owls won their first game of the season. Apparently Army didn't get the news that the government shutdown was over, as Temple cruised past the Black Knights.
Temple went up 14-0 in the first and entered the half leading 26-0, courtesy of a rushing touchdown from Kenneth Harper, two passing touchdowns by P.J. Walker and a Nate Smith 19-yard fumble return for a touchdown.
Temple would add another rushing touchdown in the third, this time by Zaire Williams, to make the score 33-0. The Black Knights would find the end zone twice, but it was too late as the Owls soared to their first victory of the season.
Temple, now 1-6, will face SMU in Dallas next.
Villanova 28 New Hampshire 29
It was a back and forth affair between the Wildcats and the Wildcats, but a late touchdown and two-point conversion allowed the Wildcats (the New Hampshire ones) to come away victorious.
Villanova jumped to a 7-0 lead in the first on Kevin Monangai 5-yard rushing touchdown. The other Wildcats would respond with a touchdown of their own, but Villanova would block the extra point. John Robertson rushed for a touchdown in the second quarter, as Villanova entered the half leading 14-6.
Robertson would rush for two more touchdowns with less than two minutes remaining in the game to give Villanova the lead. New Hampshire would march down the field to score with 14 seconds left however, as a successful two-point conversion gave them the lead and the win.
The Wildcats (the Villanova ones), now 4-3, will welcome Maine to Villanova Stadium next.
UPenn 21 Columbia 7
The Quakers improved to 3-2 on the season with a win over Columbia. Trailing 7-0 in the second, UPenn found the end zone twice before the half to take the lead. Mitchell King caught a 22-yard pass from Ryan Becker to tie the game and Billy Ragone connected on a 12-yard pass to Ty Taylor to send the Quakers to the break with the lead.
UPenn would continue it's shutdown of Columbia's offense, as they held the Lions scoreless in the second half. Spencer Kulcsar would rush for a Quakers touchdown for good measure in the fourth, as UPenn handed Columbia it's fifth loss of the season.
UPenn will welcome Yale to Franklin Field next, in a battle of 3-2 teams.
