Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Bernard Pierce ran for 152 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries, and set new Temple offensive records along the way, as the Owls blasted Buffalo, 34-0, on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field.

Pierce crossed the 100-yard barrier for the fifth time this season, and set school season marks for rushing touchdowns (17), overall touchdowns (17) and points (102). He also surpassed the career mark for total touchdowns (44).

Even his backup joined the party. Matt Brown ran for 120 yards and a score on 12 carries as the Owls (5-2, 3-1 MAC) compiled 400 yards on the ground, and owned 39:08 time of possession, never really giving the Bulls (2-5, 1-2) an opportunity to fight back.

Temple, which has played one more conference game than the rest of the league, remains in first place in the MAC East Division, and evened its home record at 2-2.

Buffalo has lost four of the last five games.
