Penn State Handles The Owls 31-6


Penn State did what they needed to do today in easily handling the Temple Owls 31-6. The long awaited running game finally showed up as Evan Royster eclipsed the 100 yard mark in the first half.

Things started a bit shakey as Penn State went three and out and failed to score on their opening drive for the first time this season. The defense held serve and forced Temple into a three-and-out of their own.

Penn State then shook off the cobwebs and marched 77 yards on eight plays highlighted by a 33 yard dash by Royster and a 27 yard run by Chaz Powell. The drive was capped off by a one yard touchdown pass to Mickey Shuler.

With the extra point, this would prove to be all the points Penn State needed on the day as the defense once again turned in a gem of a performance. The Owls were held to just six points, 251 total yards and 46 rushing yards on 29 carries.

Penn State blew the game open in the second quarter with two touchdown scoring drives. The first drive featured Royster picking up yards in double-digit chunks and was capped off with a Royster 10 yard run up the middle to paydirt. The second drive was sparked by Green converting a long third down on a screen pass to keep it alive. Royster busted off a few more double-digit yard runs setting up a pitch and catch touchdown pass from Daryll Clark to Derek Moye. Penn State took a comfortable 21-3 lead into the half and never looked back.
