Temple 34, Buffalo 0

Bernard Pierce ran for 152 yards and two touchdowns on 23

carries, and set new Temple offensive records along the way, as the

Owls blasted Buffalo, 34-0, on Saturday at Lincoln Financial


Pierce crossed the 100-yard barrier for the fifth time this

season, and set school season marks for rushing touchdowns (17),

overall touchdowns (17) and points (102). He also surpassed the

career mark for total touchdowns (44).

Even his backup joined the party. Matt Brown ran for 120 yards

and a score on 12 carries as the Owls (5-2, 3-1 MAC) compiled 400

yards on the ground, and owned 39:08 time of possession, never

really giving the Bulls (2-5, 1-2) an opportunity to fight


Temple, which has played one more conference game than the rest

of the league, remains in first place in the MAC East Division, and

evened its home record at 2-2.

Buffalo has lost four of the last five games.
