Pittsburgh got the scoring started early in the game, when Rushel Shell rushed for a one-yard touchdown run, less than five minutes into the game to give the Panthers an early 7-0 lead.
Temple was unable to respond early, failing to convert a third-down play during the entire first quarter.
Temple, though, would respond this time.
Still, the Owls need to play better if they're going to hang with the Panthers. Pitt has outgained Temple, 145 yards to just 54 through the first quarter of play.
