PHILADELPHIA – The Usa had not yet entered World War II the last time Temple defeated Penn State.
Julius converted the extra point attempt to give Penn State a 10-0 lead. It was the Lions’ last point of the match.
Franklin said Temple’s first sack on Hackenberg was the catalyst because of his team’s offensive woes.
Temple failed to record a first down on its first three drives before finally converting a third down pass to close out the first quarter.
On its second drive following the harm, Temple’s offense marched the ball 93 yards down the field to get a touchdown, knocking 6:46 seconds off the clock.
Temple’s second drive of the third quarter resulted in a 40-yard field goal from Jones.
Temple stayed in control on its first drive of the fourth quarter as running back Jahad Thomas scored his second touchdown of the game.
With 5:41 left in the game, Jones sent a 30-yard kick through the goal posts, pushing Temple farther ahead, 27-10.
