At Temple, Jeff Carr’s fourth touchdown of the night gave Temple the lead in overtime, and a Wildcats defense that had allowed large chunks of yardage produced a final stop to give Temple its 700th win as a program.
Chad President threw for 347 yards and ran for 127 in his first varsity start at quarterback. The Wildcats racked up 585 yards total offense. The Baylor commitment also threw four touchdown passes.
Round Rock exploded for 528 yards. Quarterback Collin Hinson threw for 187 yards and rushed for 160; Deandre Story ran for 156 yards and three touchdowns and Keyon Dilosa had 177 receiving yards.
But after Carr’s 7-yard touchdown run on the first overtime possession gave Temple a 48-42 lead, the Wildcats’ defense forced an incomplete pass on a fourth-and-7 play at the 22-yard line to join Amarillo, Dallas Highland Park and Plano in the 700-win club.
“It’s so cool for us to be a part of it and to have that (accomplishment) out of the way now,” said Temple coach Mike Spradlin. “All the teams before us set the table and we were able to grab a bite of it. I’m really proud of our guys.”
