It was a shootout in Texas, as the Owls fell to the Mustangs 59-49.
Temple fell behind 7-0 early before gaining what would be a solid lead in most games. The Owls, up 28-7, surrendered a touchdown to the Mustangs just before the half to put the score at 28-14.
This is when all hell broke loose. I hope if for some odd reason you bet on this game you took the over, because the points were aplenty in the second half.
Temple jumped out to a 35-21 lead in the third, before SMU scored three straight touchdowns to take the lead. Temple would tie it at 42-42, but get no closer, as the Mustangs pulled away down the home stretch for a 59-49 victory.
The loss drops the Owls to 1-7 on the season. Temple will head to Rutgers next week, as they take on the 4-3 Scarlet Knights.
Villanova 35 Maine 37
The Villanova Wildcats comeback effort fell short this weekend, as they dropped their game against the Maine Black Bears by a score of 37-35.
Solid play by Maine early saw the Wildcats fall into a 20-7 hole. Villanova would pull to within six late in the second quarter on John Robertson's second rushing touchdown of the day, a 41-yard score, but a Maine field goal as the half ended sent the Wildcats to the locker room down 9.
Villanova would emerge in the second half and begin it's comeback efforts, but fall just short in the end, losing 37-35. Robertson had a hand in all five Villanova touchdowns, as he ran for four touchdowns and threw for one. The sophomore continues to impress in an up-and-down season for the Wildcats.
Villanova, 4-4, will next take on James Madison.
UPenn 28 Yale 17
Penn jumped out to a big lead against Yale this weekend and held on in the fourth quarter to grab a 28-17 victory.
The Bulldogs would open the scoring with a field goal to take a 3-0 lead, but the Quakers would score 28 unanswered points to put the game away.
Leading 14-3 at the half, Penn scored two more touchdowns in the third to seemingly put the game out of reach. Yale would score twice in the fourth to close within 11, but would get no closer, as the Quakers held on to win 28-17.
The 4-2 Quakers will take on Brown next.
