PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jake Brownell's third field goal of the game, a 39-yarder with nine seconds left, gave Temple a 16-15 victory over Northern Illinois on Saturday in a Mid-American Conference game.
The win snapped an eight game losing streak for the Owls, who had lost 27 of their last 28 games.
The Owls trailed 15-13 after Northern Illinois' Justin Anderson's 39-yard touchdown run with 7:08 remaining. After forcing a Huskies' punt, Temple took over at its own 22-yard line with 3:30 remaining.
Quarterback Adam DiMichele then sparked a 12-play, 56-yard drive to set up the game-winning kick.
DiMichele completed 18 of 32 passes for 202 yards for Temple, while freshman tailback Daryl Robinson gained 71 yards on 14 carries.
Anderson carried 29 times for 163 yards for NIU, and has now rushed for over 150 yards in four straight games.
Temple trailed 6-0 before tackle Terrance Knighton recovered a fumble and raced 66 yards into the end zone. Two field goals by Brownell made it 13-6 before Anderson's TD capped a seven play, 95-yard drive by the Huskies.
Temple's homecoming victory was its first since the team's 28-14 homecoming win over Bowling Green on October 28, 2006.
