Are Penn State and Villanova Really Considered Temple’s ‘Rivals?’

I often allude to Temple’s Wikipedia page. Specifically, I like to talk about the subsection called “the Steve Addazio Era” and the irony of his era being two years and a record just over .500 (even though it’s really just Wikipedia protocol to have that subsection). But mostly, I like to talk about the Owls’ listed rivals: Penn State and Villanova.Let’s be honest. Nobody...
