This is the best thing to happen to college football in Philadelphia in my lifetime:
After 39 games of coming up empty against the state’s predominant
football program, the Temple Owls came up with the signature
victory they’ve been seeking since returning to “big-time”
football in 1970.
Led by quarterback P.J. Walker and a swarming defense that totally
befuddled Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg, the Owls
upset the Nittany Lions, 27-10, in the season opener for both
teams before a record crowd of 69,176 at Lincoln Financial Field.
It was Temple’s first win against Penn State since 1941.
