Never mind that Maryland’s offense was missing in Saturday's season-opening 7-6 victory over William & Maryland, a lower-level Football Championship Subdivision squad.

Temple coach Steve Addazio admires the Terps’ receivers.

"Their receiving corps is outstanding," said Addazio, whose Owls (1-0) entertain the Terps (1-0) at the Linc this upcoming Saturday.  “Kevin Dorsey and Kerry Boykins, their tight end Matt Furstenberg, they are going to come in here, and this is going to be a real contest."

Dorsey’s lone reception– a 22-yarder – set up Justus Pickett’s game-winning six-yard touchdown run.

Boykins had two receptions for 21 yards, while Furstenburg had two catches for 11 yards.

Maryland quarterback Perry Hills completed 16 of 24 passes for 145 yards. The true freshman was intercepted three times.

Pickett (11 carries for 45 yards) wil start in place of Albert Reid against Temple.

The Owls are a 10½-point favorite.
