Nov 17, 2012, 5:23 PM EDT

Army came into its Saturday game with Temple allowing 208 yards on the ground per game.

It’s allowing a lot more now.

Temple’s Matt Brown scored the Owls’ first two touchdowns before departing with an injury, allowing Montel Harris to rip off seven of his own in a 63-32 win at West Point.

Harris’ seven TDs and 351 yards are new Temple records, as he passed Bernard Pierce (5) and Paul Palmer (349), respectively. The team’s 63 points also tied a school record.

Temple running backs have scored a combined 13 touchdowns in their last two trips to Michie Stadium.

With the win, Temple improved to 4-6 and snapped a four-game losing streak. To keep track of their almost impossibly small hopes of still making a bowl game, click here.
