Temple vs. Pitt score update: Panthers lead at halftime, 31-7

So far, so good for the Pitt Panthers, as they look to notch their first Big East win of the 2012 season. Pitt currently leads the Temple Owls at halftime, 31-7.

Temple responded late in the first quarter with a touchdown of their own, but Pitt kept the scoring going in the second quarter. Kevin Harper's 32-yard field goal early in the quarter gave the Panthers a 17-7 lead.

Ray Graham extended Pitt's lead yet again, to 24-7 late in the half, after rushing for a one-yard touchdown.

Sunseri would hook up with Graham on a four-yard touchdown pass to close out the first half, and give Pitt a 31-7 lead.

Graham has had a strong first half, rushing the ball 12 times for 50 yards and a touchdown, while hauling in four receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown.
