Here are the highlights from the Temple Owls 36-10 win over the UConn Huskies on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT in American Athletic Conference action.
Despite the fact that his team is now 1-4 and 0-2 in the American Athletic Conference after Saturday’s 36-10 loss to the Temple Owls, UConn Huskies football coach Bob Diaco took almost two minutes during his postgame press conference to thank the fans for coming to the game and to not give up on the team.
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) P.J. Walker threw for 231 yards and a touchdown, ran for another and Temple's opportunistic defense scored two touchdowns and added a safety as the Owls won their American Athletic Conference opener with an 36-10 win over Connecticut on Saturday.

That said, Temple has two wins, one more than UConn, and looks to ahead of the Huskies at this stage of each programs respective rebuild.
This Saturday when the UConn Huskies and Temple Owls coaches take the field at the Rent, they will do so wearing Coach To Cure MD patches.
Not only will the UConn and Temple coaches be wearing the patches but also all coaches of American Athletic Conference teams will do so too. The arm patches raise awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Approximately 10,000 college coaches at...
In the NFL, play-by-play announcers like to call players like Darren Sproles a “swiss army knife.” It’s become an annoying cliché but it refers to his versatility—he can play as a running back as well as catch passes out of the backfield and return punts and kicks.

After dropping their home-opener a couple weeks ago, the Temple Owls made a huge statement as they plowed through the Delaware State Hornets by the final score of 59-0.
It was off to the races with no looking back as the Temple dominated from the very minute they stepped on the field. After a strong defensive stand to start the game, Temple’s Samuel Benjamin blocked Delaware State’s...
These aren’t your older brother’s Owls.
This Temple team has a completely different feel to it than Temple teams of the recent past. In my last column, I wrote about how Temple will likely win its next three games, and I really believe it will.
Look at its schedule. After its close loss at a sneaky good Navy team, Temple has a month and a half of weekends that include Delaware...
The Temple Owls‘ football program has struggled for quite some time and for a handful of years has been unable to find a consistent quarterback to lead an effective offense.

Finally, during the 2013 season, then-freshman P.J. Walker emerged as that ideal candidate. Even with a losing record as the starting QB when making his first official start...
