Montel Harris rushes for 7 TDs in Temple’s win over Army

Harris runs for seven TDs

Boston College transfer Montel Harris rushed for a career-high 351 yards and seven touchdowns to lead Temple (4-6) to a 63-32 victory over Army (2-9) at West Point, N.Y. Harris scored on a 60-yard run and 1-yard run in the second quarter, a 1-yard run and 37-yarder in the third, and a 2-yarder, another 37-yarder, and another 1-yarder in the fourth to come within one of the NCAA record set in 1990 by Howard Griffith of Illinois against Southern Illinois. ‘‘It’s a blessing to have a record like that,’’ said Harris, who had 36 carries. ‘‘Our goal is to run the ball well and have a great game. I didn’t see this coming.’’ Harris recorded the 95th 300-yard rushing game in NCAA history.
