Elijah Joseph returned an interception 95 yards for a touchdown and James Dixon scored on a 92-yard kickoff return to help Temple beat Buffalo 37-13 on Saturday. The Owls (1-2, 1-0 Mid-American Conference) defeated Buffalo for the first time since 1970. It was also Temple's first win over the Bulls (1-3, 0-1) in four meetings under coach Al Golden.

Temple took a 20-6 lead in the second quarter when Joseph picked off Buffalo quarterback Zach Maynard's pass. The Owls opened the second half with a seven-play, 71-yard drive that was capped by Vaughn Charlton's 5-yard passing score to Evan Rodriguez.

Maynard, a sophomore, finished with four interceptions for Buffalo and was replaced by freshman Jerry Davis.
