to challenge their receivers on the line of scrimmage so he can't get rid of the ball as fast as he would like to and that served us well in the past as well. whenever we do a good job of pressing on the outside that's when we get the pressure from up front, we get all the sacks but that's easier said than done. >> we'll get you ready for the showdown of two of the top teams in the nfc tomorrow at 11:30 on sunday kickoff. join sports director beasley reece and myself, the voice of the eagles merrill reese along with cbs3 special contributor lesean mccoy. been a long time since temple has beaten penn state. the nittany lyons with a 31 game winning streak against the owls. the winner will be bowl eligible. temple head coach matt rhule by the way is a penn state graduate. third quarter of the game penn state with the lead and that's after a tj walker interception. bill belton goes 8 yards for the score. temple's first play of the drive walker goes deep, finds jalen fitzpatrick for a
75-yard connection. penn state defense forced five owl turnovers, grant haley with an interception and he will go for 30 yards for the score. penn state bowl eligible for the first time in three years as they beat temple 30-13. >> 49 seniors that stayed around this program when this university and when this community and when this football program needed them the most so the fact that we're going to be able to send them out the right way and be able to continue our season and be able to continue to keep our family together for a month or so after the regular season ends is special. >> over to franklin field, ivy league action magnolia's finale: the crimson wop a share of the ivy league title with a 34-24 victory over penn. out on the main lionville november hosting albany. it was the john robertson show
