Penn State vs. Temple: Brandon Beachum Scores, Penn State Ahead 14-10

PHILADELPHIA--Temple converts a third-and-five to start its drive but Michael Mauti intercepts Mike Gerardi's pass to give Penn State the ball back again, this time at the Temple 44.

Rob Bolden deploys Rob Bolden at quarterback for this drive. His first pass back, he throws a screen pass right into the arms of a Temple defender, who drops it. He comes back nicely and hits Devon Smith for a first down, though.

Devon Smith is blown up on a misdirection play. Penn State is then stopped short on third-and-6. The Lions go for it on fourth-and-2 and Bolden hits Moye for 11 yards to keep the drive going. Moye is now over 100 yards receiving.

Penn State runs Beachum into the line a couple of times and advances to the Temple 4-yardline. The Lions then fumble the snap. They go for it on fourth down, and Beachum pounds it down to the 1-yardline for a first down.

On the next play, Michale Zordich punches the ball in the endzone for a one-yard touchdown. Evan Lewis converts the extra point, and Penn State now leads 14-10 with 2:42 to play.

Penn State scoring summary: 12 plays, 44, yards and 6:04 time of possession.
