Ladies and gentlemen, we have ourselves a game.
Twice, in fact.
Until Foster fumbled the ball, which was recovered by Temple’s John Youboty at the Ohio 32 yard line. Add to that a 15-yard penalty against the home team (personal foul) and Temple was in perfect position to capitalize.
Tettleton took matters into his own hands just as soon as the Bobcats got the ball back, rushing for a five yard touchdown that became seven points courtesy of field goal kicker Matt Weller.
Temple again answered back after Weller missed the chance for another three and drove 69 yards across just three plays as Rod Streater reeled one in for 34 yards into the end zone.
McManus delivered to make it 14-14.
That’s where we stand at the half. Temple was able to stuff the Bobcats’ final drive, which should give them the confidence they need to keep playing well in the third quarter.
Time will tell.
