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.

Price was right

Keith Price threw a career-best five touchdown passes and Washington overcame a slow start to whip host Colorado, 38-3, for the Huskies’ fourth straight win. Price’s five TDs, to five different receivers, tied the school record set by Chris Rowland in 1973 and tied by Jake Locker in 2010. The Huskies (7-4, 5-3 Pac-12) won consecutive road games for just the second time in the last decade.

A quick hook

Western Michigan fired coach Bill Cubit with one year left on his contract Saturday night, shortly after the Broncos lost to Eastern Michigan at home. The Broncos, who beat Connecticut early in the season, finished with a mark of 4-8, 2-8 in the Mid-American Conference. Cubit was 51-47 overall and 36-27 in the MAC over eight seasons.
