It’s tough to win games without scoring in the second half.
Temple (4-2) held a 17-10 lead late in the first half before Northern Illinois tied the game up with 35 seconds remaining.
The Huskies took that momentum into the second half and outscored the Owls 14-0 for a 31-17 victory.
Temple running back Bernard Pierce, who injured his ankle earlier in the season, had just three carries for six yards.
Matt Brown filled in and ran for 93 yards and a touchdown.
