PHILDELPHIA -

Marcus Green's blocked a late field goal attempt and Montel Harris scored two touchdowns to lead Temple to a 37-28 victory over South Florida in a Big East Conference matchup on Saturday.

The game marked Temple's re-entry into the Big East since the Owls were kicked out of the conference in 2004.

Temple snapped a two-game losing skid with the victory, improving to 2-2 overall and 1-0 in the Big East. South Florida has lost four-straight after opening the season with consecutive victories, dropping to 2-4 overall and 0-2.

Harris erupted for a season-best 133 yards on 24 carries and two fourth-quarter touchdowns.

South Florida was in position to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. But Bulls' kicker Maikon Bonani's 45-yard field goal attempt was blocked by Green and picked up by Anthony Robey, who advanced the ball to the South Florida 35.
