Maryland at Temple

Maryland 36, Temple 27

  •  

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Perry Hills threw two touchdowns and ran for one to help Maryland beat Temple 36-27 Saturday.

Embarrassed by the Owls in a 31-point loss last season, the Terrapins (2-0) nearly blew a 23-point lead at halftime. Hills had all three of his scores in the half to help Maryland race to a 26-3 lead. The Owls stormed back in the second half but ran out of time and big plays.

Maryland played nothing like the team that squeaked out a 7-6 win last week against Football Championship Subdivision team William & Mary. The Terrapins' 12 first downs in the first half were one less than they had all of last week. They outgained the Owls by 145 total yards in the first half.

The Owls (1-1) were sloppy and out of sync in a game where they were 10-point favorites.

C.J. Hammond had a 62-yard TD catch for the Owls.
