Penn State at Temple - Football Highlights

(AP) Michael Zordich scored on a 1-yard run with 2:42 left to stretch Penn State’s winning streak against Temple to 29 straight games in a 14-10 victory on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. The Owls led for most of the game and gave their intrastate rival one of the biggest scares in this series. For all the strides Temple has made in its program the last five years, it still can’t beat Joe Paterno and the Nittany Lions. Temple has not defeated Penn State since a 14-0 victory on Oct. 18, 1941. The teams tied 7-7 in 1950. After missing two field goal attempts, Penn State converted a fourth-and-1 on the 3 late in the fourth. Check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.
