Temple Defeats Cincinnati, Earns Respect It Should Have Gained Last Weekend

Temple got absolutely zero credit for pummeling Penn State last week. In fact, the Owls received so little recognition for a dominant defense performance (10 sacks, 52 yards allowed over the final three quarters), that it entered Nippert Stadium as a 7-point underdog to preseason conference favorite Cincinnati on Saturday night. Rather than complain about it in the media (see: Bielema...

Temple DE wins national honor for sacking Hackenberg

The Temple Owls entered into last Saturday’s game against Penn State on a 39-game losing streak against the Nittany Lions.

Penn State Does The Only Thing It Can Do With The Temple Game Tape--Bury It

The internet was certainly hopping Saturday about the Penn State Nittany Lions, but not in a way that would make the school and alumni proud. The team played an abysmal game against an opponent that they should have easily beaten--the Temple Owls. No one could do anything right and it showed in the end as the Owls won 27-10.With a tape as bad as that one has to be the team did the...

Temple claims AutoNation’s national team of the week

College football’s opening weekend included several ranked teams falling to unranked competition.

But this past weekend was also one for the history...

The Return of Robby Anderson

The Temple Owls are poised to have a memorable season this year after the big jump they made in 2014, going 6-6 and just barley missing a bowl bid. The Owls were in position to win almost every game last year, but a lot of them slipped away in awful fashion. It wasn’t necessarily one side of the ball’s fault, however, if blame were to be tossed out, it would fall on the inconsistency...

Mascot Memoirs: the Temple Owls

Birds are among the most-used team nicknames in sports. Professional franchises and colleges alike have adopted cardinals, eagles, hawks and falcons, to name a few, as mascots. Rather than follow the flock, Temple University opted for a bit more unique aviary representative–the owl. What is an “Owl?” According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary, owls are “chiefly...

Temple is Highest Ranked AAC Team in ESPN’s 2015 Preseason FPI Rankings

Temple split its wins and losses in 2014, wasn’t invited to a bowl, and lost five of its last seven games to end the season. Looks like a recipe for a middle-of-the-pack finish in the conference preseason rankings. Well computers have a different way of ranking teams. They neither use emotions, biases, or even the eye test; just cold-hard number crunching. ESPN’s computers are...

What a Bowl Game Would Mean for the Temple Owls

There is no doubt that the Temple Owls took a few steps forward this season after last year’s 10-loss leap backwards. The first few steps were smooth and swift: a win at Vanderbilt (the SEC’s finest, I tell ya!), finding their defense, freshmen excelling immediately, and growing confidence in head coach Matt Rhule. But then […] The post What a Bowl Game Would Mean for the Temple...
