Temple cruises to 49-17 victory over Connecticut

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Anthony Russo threw two touchdown passes to Branden Mack and Re’Mahn Davis ran for 105 yards and a score as Temple rolled to a 49-17 victory over Connecticut on Saturday.

It was all UConn early as the Huskies used Jack Zergiotis’ 51-yard scoring strike to Ardell Brown and Steven Krajewski’s 2-yard TD run to grab a 14-0 lead. Russo hit Mack for a 63-yard score to pull Temple (8-4, 5-3 American Athletic Conference) within 14-7, but Clayton Harris nailed a 40-yard field goal 4 minutes into the second quarter to put UConn (2-10, 0-8) up 17-7. The Owls closed to within 17-14 at halftime when backup quarterback Todd Centeio connected with Jadan Blue for a 10-yard TD.

Temple took control of the game in the third quarter. Russo put together back-to-back scoring drives - hooking up with Mack for a 41-yard TD and adding an 8-yard TD run - for a 28-17 Owls’ lead. Davis pitched in with a 55-yard scoring run, Sam Franklin picked off a Krajewski pass and raced 29 yards for a TD and Temple’s lead was 42-17 after three quarters. Tayvon Ruley’s 6-yard TD run in the fourth quarter capped the scoring.
