Temple used a pair of rushing touchdowns from running back Kenny Harper to take 13-9 lead into halftime of the first American Athletic Conference football game. The game is being played at Lincoln Financial Field.

The second of Harper’s two scores capped an 11-play, 75-yard drive. On first-and-goal at the Houston 3 Harper scored with 0:50 remaining in the first half.

Harper also scored from the Houston 1 near the end of the first quarter. Temple’s Jim Cooper, who missed a pair of field goals and an extra point last week, failed to convert the extra point. Paul Layton kicked the extra point on Harper’s second score.

Houston, which has yet to score a touchdown, has gotten a pair of field goals from Richie Leone.
