Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Matt Brown ran for 156 yards and two touchdowns, and Delano Green had two scores to lead Temple to a 47-13 win over Kent State, keeping the Owls on course for a Mid-American Conference title game appearance.

The Owls won a share of the Eastern division crown and can clinch a spot in the MAC title game by beating Ohio University on Friday night.

Brown replaced star running back Bernard Pierce, who left the game with a shoulder injury.

Temple, which scored 38 straight points in the second half after trailing 10-9, won its ninth straigth win -- a school record. The Owls (9-2, 7-0) have their best record since going 10-2 in 1979, the year of their last bowl appearance.

Kent State (5-6, 4-4) quarterback Spencer Keith left the game with a shoulder injury, but connected with Kendrick Pressley for a 6-yard touchdown pass, their only time reaching the end zone.
