Will Pierce return for his senior season?

Bernard Pierce had an opportunity to put the rumors to rest about his destire to apply for the upcoming NFL draft.  The Temple junior tailback chose not to.

He was asked after Friday's regular-season finale if this was his final game as an Owl at Lincoln Financial Field.

"I'm going to take it one step at a time," he said following his team's 34-16 victory over Kent State. "I really don't have any comment on that."

Pierce has rushed for 1,381 yards and school-record 25 touchdowns this season.
