Temple will honor Baltimore Ravens reserve tailback Bernard Pierce on Saturday for winning the Super Bowl.

The former Temple standout will be recognized in a halftime ceremony during the Owls men’s basketball game against Rhode Island at the Liacouras Center.

After deciding to forego his senior season at Temple, Pierce was drafted by the Ravens in the third round of last year’s NFL draft. He went to rush for 734 yards and a touchdown as Ray Rice’s backup.

The Ravens ended the season with a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
