IT HASN'T gone according to the intended script.
When Montel Harris, Boston College's all-time leading rusher, transferred to Temple for his final season, he was supposed to team up with fellow senior Matt Brown to form a dynamic backfield.
But when one wasn't hurt, the other was. They've rarely played together. So we'll never know about the possibilities.
What we do know is that when Brown went down with a hamstring injury Saturday at Army, Harris - who'd gone out the week before with a knee injury - took over as few ever do.
When it was over, and the Owls (4-6) had broken a four-game losing streak with a 63-32 win, Harris had rushed for a Big East-record 351 yards (two more than Heisman Trophy runner-up Paul Palmer's Temple high from 1986) and seven touchdowns, one shy of the NCAA mark. For that effort, he was named Big East Offensive player of the week (placekicker Brandon McManus also was honored).
