MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — P.J. Walker threw for 328 yards and four touchdowns, including three to Robby Anderson, as Temple closed out its season with a 41-21 victory over Memphis on Saturday.

Walker completed 20-32 passes. Anderson had 96 yards receiving, including scoring catches of 1, 11 and 21 yards. Chris Coyer had three receptions for 129 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown catch.

The win gave the Owls (2-10, 1-7) their first victory in the American Athletic Conference, while snapping a four-game losing streak overall. Temple’s offense dominated the nationally-ranked Memphis defense, amassing 534 yards in total offense. Memphis (3-8, 1-6) managed only 228 yards.

Besides Walker’s four touchdown passes, the Owls scored when Michael Felton recovered a blocked punt in the end zone. Nick Visco kicked field goals from 22 and 19 yards.

Sam Craft scored all three Memphis touchdowns – on runs of 1 and 3 yards and a 10-yard pass from Paxton Lynch.
