Under Matt Rhule, Temple Has Chance to Win Any Game

Temple just beat the No. 23 team in the country, East Carolina, by playing its worst game of the year. First, a story: The Owls started their season 4-1. This was a nice surprise to most of us considering they were coming off of a 2-10 season.

Why We Overreacted to Temple’s Hot Start
