After last year’s meeting with Temple, Bowling Green entered the game as 21 point favorites over the Owls. Bowling Green quarterback, Tyler Sheehan had a great game, throwing 351-yards passing and 4 touchdowns on 30-47 passing. Quarterback Adam DiMichele tried to keep Temple close for the whole game. He had a marvelous four touchdowns, rushing for one and no interceptions. Turnovers are what hurt the Owls this weekend.
After being tied 21-21 at halftime, the Owls fumbled twice, both being recovered by the Falcons for touchdowns. Another problem for the Owls seemed to be protection. Although DiMichele posted very good numbers, he was sacked six times. The Owls take their 0-4 record to Army next weekend.
La Salle took the field at home against the College of New Jersey. The Explorers expected a different outcome from this home game. The 28-yard field goal kicked by Matt Dalessio, with 42 seconds left, lifted New Jersey to a win and sent La Salle home with their third loss of the season. La Salle had trouble throughout trying to get the run game going. The College of New Jersey was outstanding in stopping the run, holding the Explorers to just 64 yards on 35 carries. La Salle looks to get their first win of the year when they face off against Geneva University next Saturday.
In the final game of the week, the University of Penn Quakers faced off against the Villanova Wildcats. Penn came out firing in the first quarter. They started out the game with a 14-7 lead and then Villanova woke up. After that first quarter, Villanova showed no mercy, wheeling off 27 unanswered points.
Villanova quarterback, Antwon Young threw four touchdowns and 241 yards in the Wildcats’ win over the Quakers. This wasn’t even Penn’s downfall though. The five interceptions thrown by Robert Irvin and two by Bryan Walker are what did the Quakers in on Saturday night. The 45 yards on the ground for the Quakers did not help out in opening up the passing game either.
Villanova takes their 3-1 record against James Madison on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. This should serve as a very good match-up, as one team will leave the weekend with a 3-2 record and the other with a 4-1 record. The University of Penn looks to get their first win of the season when they face off against Ivy League rival, Dartmouth University. Dartmouth also enters this game with a 0-2 record.
