IF YOU WANT to be the best team in your conference, you obviously have to get past enough of the other contenders. But you also have to get it done against the not-as-good clubs, especially at home, because they all count. Temple, which is looking more and more like the Atlantic 10's team to beat, did exactly that last night at the Liacouras Center, where the Owls rarely lose even to the haves. Temple won its fifth straight, to remain tied for first in the loss column, 78-60 over Fordham, which has now lost six of eight.

The Temple football team will play Fordham on Sept., 14, 2013 at Lincoln Financial Field, according to multiple sources. It is unlikely that the Owls will have a home-and-home series with the Football Championship Subdivision program. Temple's current announced nonleague games for next season are at Notre Dame (Aug. 31), at Idaho (Sept. 28), and against Army (Oct. 19) at the Linc. - Keith Pompey

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli called a timeout with 1 minute, 46 seconds remaining in a six-point game. His Hawks had let Fordham back within striking distance after leading by as many as 13 points. There was no doubt where St. Joseph's was going to go to ensure a victory. Chris Wilson drained a three-point shot from the right wing to push the game out of reach, giving the Hawks their first Atlantic Ten win of the season, 66-55, Wednesday night at Hagan Arena. St. Joseph's finished the game on a 14-6 run. "It was a great read," Martelli said of Wilson's play.

The Penn football team stepped out of the Ivy League Saturday night and made the most of the occasion. Facing Fordham of the Patriot League, the Quakers took an early lead and then withstood a rally by the Rams before completing a 35-20 victory at Franklin Field. In winning its 16th straight October game, Penn improved to 2-2 while defeating Fordham (1-4) for the fifth time in as many meetings. Up by four points at the break, Penn reached the end zone twice in the third period to take a commanding, 28-10 advantage.

Fordham will join the Atlantic Ten Conference next season, the league will announce today, but the A-10's prime target, DePaul, won't make a decision until after Jan. 1. With the addition of Fordham, the conference will have nine basketball- playing teams in 1995-96; West Virginia and Rutgers will leave to join the Big East Conference. The addition of the Rams will give the A-10 at least a presence in the New York television market. Fordham will join Temple, St. Joseph's, St. Bonaventure, Massachusetts, Duquesne, George Washington, Rhode Island, and incoming Xavier of Ohio.

Coming off a confidence-building victory last week at Dartmouth in its Ivy League opener, Penn will step out of the league Saturday night to face Fordham at Franklin Field. The game was scheduled before Fordham and other members of the Patriot League began offering athletic scholarships a few years ago. "Now we're playing a much different team than we thought we were scheduling," Penn coach Al Bagnoli said. "Fordham is a very athletic team, with speed. We're going to have our hands full.

On the scoreboard, La Salle had its best defensive day of the season. But coach John Giannini suggested otherwise. Holding an opponent under 50 points for the first time in nearly nine years, La Salle defeated Fordham, 60-49, on Saturday in an Atlantic Ten game at Tom Gola Arena. It was the lowest point total the Explorers had allowed since a 65-44 win over Massachusetts on Feb. 8, 2006. Still, Giannini wouldn't call it the best defensive effort of the season. "No, we have done this many times.

Even though this isn't a Colonial Athletic Association game, Villanova football coach Andy Talley left no doubt about the importance of the nonconference matchup at Fordham at 6 p.m. Saturday. "This is a must-win game," Talley said. That wasn't just coach-speak. The Wildcats are coming off an impressive performance in Saturday's 24-14 loss at Boston College. That won't hurt Villanova in the minds of the Football Championship Subdivision playoff committee members. Yet losing to an FCS team such as Fordham would be a major setback for a Villanova team that is ranked No. 8 by the Sports Network and has national title aspirations.

Carl Jones didn't lack motivation or production. Coming off his most disappointing effort of the season, Jones scored a game-high 24 points and shot 5 of 8 from beyond the arc as St. Joseph's earned an 82-56 Atlantic Ten win over Fordham on Saturday at Hagan Arena. In the previous game, Wednesday's 70-53 loss at St. Louis, Jones was limited to two points, shooting 1 for 9 from the field. "Today I tried to redeem myself as much as possible," Jones said. With the victory, the Hawks are 16-11 and 7-7 in the A-10.
