The Temple football team had a three-point lead late in the game yesterday at Lincoln Financial Field, and the only question was whether the Owls would put an opponent away this time. They did. Temple quarterback Adam DiMichele hit wide receiver Jason Harper for a 45-yard score, which set a school record for touchdowns in a game and stood up as the deciding points in the Owls' 55-52 victory over Eastern Michigan. The touchdown by Harper increased Temple's lead to 55-45 with 2 minutes, 50 second left to play.

Jerami Grant scored 15 points in his first start of the season, Rakeem Christmas matched his career high with 15 points, and No. 2 Syracuse beat visiting Eastern Michigan, 70-48, on Tuesday in the final nonconference game for both teams. Syracuse (13-0) raced to a 20-point lead in the first half, allowed the Eagles to slice it in half before the break, then regained control early in the second and won its 51st consecutive nonconference game in the Carrier Dome. The Eagles (7-5) are coached by former Syracuse assistant Rob Murphy.

The North Carolina Walkover, alias the East Regional, continued on schedule last night. The Tar Heels used yet another Cinderella for target practice. Eastern Michigan, the last hope for fanciers of the long shot, was the walking bulls-eye this time, succumbing at the Meadowlands, 93-67, thus joining Northeastern and Villanova as Carolina cannon fodder. In three NCAA tournament games, Carolina's cumulative winning margin is a spread-busting 77 points. It hasn't hurt, of course, that five of the top eight seeds in this regional swooned early on, smoothing the way for the Heels.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - After its rushing game strained to find a rhythm a week ago, Penn State focused on getting the runners and the offensive linemen working as a unit instead of as a half-dozen separate entities. The week of practice showed on Saturday. The Nittany Lions' three-man running back rotation averaged an impressive 8.9 yards per carry and scored five touchdowns, taking the heat off freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg and contributing to a 45-7 thrashing of Eastern Michigan in Penn State's home opener at Beaver Stadium.

While he amassed 8,595 career rushing yards, the state's No. 2 all-time mark, Owen J. Roberts tailback Ryan Brumfield didn't exactly have college recruiters beating down his family's front door. "I guess my size had something to do with it," the 5-foot-10, 178-pound senior said. "It was a little frustrating, but I didn't have any control over it. I'm going to try my hardest to make the teams that didn't recruit me regret it. " Brumfield will get that opportunity at the Division I-A level, and primarily against Mid-American Conference foes.

Big East champion Connecticut, the top seed in the Southeast Region, advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament for the third straight year yesterday, scampering past a tough Eastern Michigan team, 95-81. The Huskies broke open a close game early in the second half, using hot shooting from point guard Doron Sheffer and an enormous rebounding edge to build an eight-point lead midway through the half. Sheffer led Connecticut (32-2) with 27 points, which tied his career high, on 10-of-14 shooting.

Having changed its nickname from the Hurons to the Eagles so as not to offend American Indians, Eastern Michigan will bring a politically correct football team into Beaver Stadium today to play 10th-ranked Penn State. It won't bring much else. Eastern Michigan (0-2), a member of the Mid-American Conference, has lost its games by a combined score of 58-26, going down against Akron, 27-9, and Louisiana Tech, 31-17. It's little wonder that Penn State coach Joe Paterno did some fancy scrambling this week to motivate his Nittany Lions for what is expected to be an easy victory.

Facing Bowling Green in what was perhaps its most important outing under third-year coach Bobby Wallace, the Temple football team answered the challenge last night in its home opener before 15,231 fans at Franklin Field. In the process, the Owls kept their visions of a winning season very much alive. Temple, which went winless in nonconference games on its way to 2-9 finishes during Wallace's first two seasons, improved its record this fall to 2-1 with a 31-14 victory that included a three-touchdown halftime lead.

Kentucky guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison combined for 28 points, including 11 during a critical second-half stretch with star Julius Randle sidelined by cramps, helping the 18th-ranked Wildcats beat visiting No. 6 Louisville, 73-66, in Lexington on Saturday. Randle's 17 first-half points staked Kentucky (10-3) to a 41-36 halftime lead before the 6-foot-9 forward went to the locker room early in the second with leg cramps. He returned but cramped again and spent the rest of the game on the bench.

STATE COLLEGE - The numbers are not there for Deion Barnes, not through three games. Penn State's star defensive end and Northeast High graduate has been limited to five tackles - none for a loss - and has not recorded a sack during the first quarter of the team's season. Barnes led the team in sacks last season, with six, and was named the Big Ten's top freshman, so opponents are aware of where he is lining up this season. And coach Bill O'Brien said the box score does not always tell the whole story.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - After going from Penn State's opening-day starter at running back to injured player to reserve during the 2012 season, Bill Belton could have been frustrated. Perhaps he thought there was little or no chance that it would work out for him with the Nittany Lions. Still, Belton remained optimistic with the help of his parents and the guy calling the shots, coach Bill O'Brien, who told him what he needed to do to improve at what was, for Belton, a relatively new position.

STATE COLLEGE - With his helmet resting away from him and a towel around his neck, Allen Robinson spent the first 30 minutes of Penn State's 2013 campaign on the sideline. Coach Bill O'Brien, for an undisclosed reason, had his top offensive weapon sit out the first 30 minutes of the season. The 2012 Big Ten Wide Receiver of the Year entered the contest against Syracuse after halftime, made an immediate impact and has put up big numbers in the first 2 weeks of the season. But the two-quarter benching did bring a different outlook to Robinson.

STATE COLLEGE - Bill Belton is not naïve enough to put too much stock into one contest. The Penn State junior running back tallied a career-high 108 rushing yards and scored twice in a 45-7 shellacking of Eastern Michigan on Saturday. The touchdowns were Belton's first in 46 weeks. The Sicklerville, N.J., native ran for 103 yards and three scores against Iowa on Oct. 20 of last season. But, in the Nittany Lions' final five games of the 2012 campaign, Belton accumulated only 27 yards on 11 carries and got his hands on the ball only once in the last 4 weeks.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - John Cappelletti had known for a week that his No. 22 would be retired. For that week, he'd been miserable. He thought about it constantly. His number would be the first retired in Penn State football history. Initially, it rattled his nerves, but in a good way, he said. "I was just thinking, man, this is huge, this is the first one, probably the only one for a while," Cappelletti said Saturday. "But this was a good nervous. I really wasn't showing it to anybody else, but I could feel it. " Cappelletti, 61, was invited to Saturday's game - a 45-7 blowout over Eastern Michigan - by athletic director Dave Joyner a couple of months ago. At first, it was only to attend the 1973 team reunion and celebrate the 40th anniversary of Cappelletti's Heisman Trophy.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State coach Bill O'Brien seemed to be in a jovial mood during his weekly radio show this week, giving lighthearted answers to questioners asking about his team's struggles on third down, why he didn't use the shotgun more and rushing against a stacked defense. But as the hour wore on Thursday night and the questions about last Saturday's opening-day shortcomings continued, O'Brien's answers became shorter and less humorous. Finally, the coach had something to say. "I've been asked about third-down percentage, hot reads, the shotgun, running into a nine-man front," he said.

CHICAGO - Penn State will begin its public sale of single-game tickets on Tuesday, but a new policy is sure to disappoint those who are not fans of its Mid-American Conference opponents. Those planning to buy tickets to the Oct. 12 game against Michigan or the Nov. 23 contest against Nebraska must buy the same number of tickets to another game. The Michigan game is paired with the Sept. 7 home opener against Eastern Michigan, while the Nebraska contest requires a ticket purchase for the Kent State game on Sept.
