Adonis Jennings' big play sparks Owls

The junior gave the Owls a 10-0 lead with a 40-yard touchdown reception early in the win over Cincinnati.

Junior Adonis Jennings has played a supporting role at wide receiver this season with Ventell Bryant and Keith Kirkwood blossoming into Temple's top receivers.

But Jennings had one of his bigger moments of the year when he caught a back-shoulder throw from quarterback Phillip Walker near the sideline, turned it upfield and finished off the 40-yard score against Cincinnati Saturday. The touchdown gave the Owls an early 10-0 lead and they went on to a 34-13 victory in the American Athletic Conference contest.

Watch the video to see Jennings talk about his catch-and-run, his role on the team and his rapport with Walker this season.
