BCSPJ Walker, QB TempleSince taking over the starting job mid-season Walker has been a huge upgrade for the Owls. Several times this season he has looked very impressive, using his dual-threat abilities to put up nice fantasy numbers. His performance against UCF this past solidifies him as a must add and with UCONN and Memphis left on the schedule, he could be a nice play.Robert...
With a touch more than two minutes to play, Temple looked as if it was going to pull off one of the biggest upsets of the season.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Seeking a rebound after the embarrassing 49-14 loss to Houston on Homecoming, Rutgers and coach Kyle Flood opened up the quarterback competition for Temple game week. The 1-7 Owls come to town Saturday afternoon for the final time in conference play, sporting true freshman and Elizabeth native P.J. Walker at quarterback.
P.J. Walker continued to show signs of how good he will be at quarterback for the Temple University football team for the next three years and junior Robby Anderson flashed his potential at wide receiver against SMU on Saturday.
But the Owls gave up an embarrassing 45 points in the second half and let an early 28-7 lead slip away as the Mustangs won a 59-49 shootout.
It was a homecoming treat for the Temple Owls who have finally won a game. After starting the season 0-6, the Owls defeated the 3-4 Army Black Knights 33-14 on Saturday afternoon. With a great display of offense the Owls battled through the whole game and continued to score points and make defensive plays.
For the first time this season the Owls scored on their opening drive. Kenneth...
P.J. Walker’s debut as Temple’s starting quarterback provided a glimpse at the future but ultimately reiterated the frustration of the present.
Walker, a true freshman, went 12-of-22 for 200 yards with two touchdowns and one interception — albeit a costly one — and a fumble as the Owls fell to 0-6 overall and 0-3 in the American Athletic Conference with a 38-20 loss at Cincinnati.
And so it wouldn’t be a Temple football season if there wasn’t a quarterback controversy.
The Owls fell to 0-5 overall with a 30-7 loss to No. 7 Louisville in which they trailed 24-0 at the half.
True freshman quarterback P.J. Walker relieved starter Connor Reilly in the second quarter and stayed under center with coach Matt Rhule giving every indication Walker would be the starter.
