Penn and Temple close, Penn remains undefeated

Temple 28 Massachusetts 0

Interesting: The Owls needed a quick start in the minutes. On the first down, offensive quarterback EJ Warner went for a long pass, but Jose Barbone couldn’t get to him. Then it became a matter of wearing the UMS and the defense documented that, something the defense enjoyed.

Defensively, Temple allowed 259 yards of offense, 80 through the air. The Owls stopped the Minutemen 15 of 18 times on third-down conversions. UMass got to the 22 yard line with 5:41 to play. They missed a field goal on the drive. The crowning achievement came in the third quarter when Leighton Jordan intercepted a pass and returned it 41 yards for a touchdown and a 21–0 lead.

Temple got on the board in the second quarter when Warner hit Ian Stewart with an 11-yard scoring toss. On the final score of the game, Warner went deep and found Adonicas Sanders for a 50-yard touchdown.

Quincy Patterson got playing time and scored on the ground for the second straight game.

What do the numbers say? Patterson led the Owls with a 52 yard catch. He threw for 33 yards. Darvon Hubbard 51. Warner completed half of 22 passes for 173 yards. He had 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Sanders caught 4 passes for 101 yards. Alex Odom and Kobe Wilson each had 9 tackles, with Odom scoring a pass. UMass ran for 179 yards, led by 53 yards by Ellis Merweather. Temple had 107 on the ground and 206 in the air.

Penn 12 Lafayette 0

Interesting: University of Pennsylvania scored 2 touchdowns of 1 yard, and a pass of 1 yard. And they ran away with an extra point. Penn didn’t need more as the defense kept Lafayette out of the end zone. The defense sacked the Leopards five times for 40 yards, holding Lafayette to one net yard. Lafayette passed for 241 yards.

Lafayette had a deep drive to the Penn 18 yard line, but they turned the ball over on downs. Jake Heimlicher led Penn with 10 tackles, 7 solo.

The Quakers’ special teams gave up what appeared to be a punt return and were negated by two penalties on the return play.

What do the numbers say? Aidan Sain passed for 196 yards for the Red and Blue. He bounced the ball around completing shots to 10 different players. Trey Flowers ran for 70 yards. Ryan Schuster passed for 167 yards for Lafayette.

Monmouth 49 #9 Villanova 42

Interesting: The score could have been Monmouth 7 touchdowns to Villanova 6. On the main line, it was a sell-out weekend for parents and their CAA opener was an offensive show. Despite Monmouth’s lead, Villanova would come back to tie the game 6 times. Can the defense stop the game? It seems so. The game was tied at 35 in the fourth quarter. The Wildcats recovered a Hawks fumble in Nova State. But on the next play, Wildcats quarterback Connor Watkins was intercepted. Monmouth scored a touchdown on that conversion and took a 42-35 lead. The teams traded touchdowns with the Hawks scoring the deciding touchdown with 46 seconds to play on Jaden Shearden’s 16-yard run. Still, the Wildcats had one last chance. Watkins sent a pass to Jaron Hayek, but the pass fell incomplete. On the last play of the game, Watkins’ pass was intercepted in the end zone. Monmouth earned their first CAA win.

What do the numbers say? Villanova running back Jalen Jackson rushed for a career-high 187 yards, and his 3 touchdowns were also a college-best. As a team, Villanova rushed for 292 yards. Hayek caught 6 passes for 136 yards this season, including a 51-yard catch that went over 50 yards to Watkins. Watkins passed for 239 yards and ran for 58.

Sherdon gave up 211 rushing yards on 22 carries, a college high. Quarterback Tony Muskett completed 11 of 17 passes for 161 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Villanova had 531 yards of total offense. Monmouth gained 482 yards.

He gave up 49 points for the second straight game, a big number that should worry the Wildcats.
