Bowling Green uses strong second half to down Temple

Two costly turnovers to start the second half proved to be too much to overcome as Temple dropped a 48-35 decision to Bowling Green Saturday afternoon at Doyt L. Perry Stadium. The Owls (0-4, 0-2) and Falcons (3-1, 1-0) were deadlocked, 21-21, at intermission, but the Falcon defense scored twice in the third quarter to give the home team a lead it would not relinquish.

The 35 points scored by Temple is the most the team has scored since a 38-7 win over Florida A&M on Sept. 18, 2004. It is also the most against a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent since a 44-36 win at Middle Tennessee State (10/4/03). More >>
