CINCINNATI (AP) -- Richard Hall ran 25 yards to score the winning touchdown as Cincinnati defeated Temple 30-24 in three overtimes Saturday night.
Hall made his game-winning run on second-and-10 after Temple (0-3) missed three field goals in overtime. Cincinnati (3-0) had one field goal blocked and one hit the upright.
The victory gave Bearcats coach Rick Minter his 51st career win, a Cincinnati record. The previous record was held by Sid Gillman, who was 50-13-1 from 1949-54. Minter is 51-56-1 in his 10th season.
Gino Guidugli was 29-of-43 passing for 321 yards and ran for 71 yards in 14 attempts to become Cincinnati's all-time leader in offense with 6,799 yards.
Temple had three receivers with more than 100 yards receiving.
Zamir Cobb had nine catches for 120 yards and a touchdown, Phil Goodman caught eight passes for 129 and Terrence Stubbs had six receptions for 123 yards.
Cincinnati trailed 24-10 entering the fourth quarter. Derrick Eddington caught a 56-yard TD pass from Guidugli with 11:29 remaining to cut Temple's lead to 24-17. Hall then scored on an 11-yard run with 8:46 remaining to tie it.
