Temple cruises past Navy 34-10 to capture AAC championship

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Soon after coach Matt Rhule received the obligatory drenching on the sideline, confetti rained down on the Temple football team and the players jumped with excitement during a celebration that was nearly five decades in the making.

For the first time since 1967, the Owls are league champions.

Phillip Walker threw two touchdown passes, Temple's defense stuffed Navy's running game and the Owls claimed their first American Athletic Conference title with a 34-10 victory Saturday.
