Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Montel Harris rushed for 133 yards and two touchdowns to guide the Temple Owls to a 37-28 conference win over the South Florida Bulls in Temple's first Big East Conference appearance since 2004.

Temple struck first, as Coyer rushed for a 24-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter. The extra point by Brandon McManus was no good.

Daniels then found Lamar for a 24-yard touchdown pass and after a made PAT, the Bulls led 7-6.

McManus, who also missed a 22-yard field goal attempt, managed to redeem himself as he made a 50-yard field goal in the final seconds of the first half, putting the Owls back up, 9-7.

As the second half got going, Lamar ran in a 19-yard touchdown, which gave the Bulls the lead back, 14-9.
