"We are a team that can respond and compete with anybody."
With his performance today, junior running back Bernard Pierce etched his name deeper into Temple football’s record books.
Pierce scored five touchdowns, a career high and Temple single-game record, en route to the Owls’ 38-7 win over Maryland.
The defense dominated Maryland, which came into the game as the fifty-fifth highest scoring offense in the country. The Owls sacked Terrapins sophomore quarterback Danny O’Brien three times and forced one interception.
The Owls improved to 3-1 on the season while the Terps dropped to 2-2. Pierce’s 12 touchdowns on the season currently leads the nation.
