Temple Owls Flying High, But Tough Road Lies Ahead.

The Temple Owls are off to their best start since 1979, as they tamed the Connecticut Huskies 30-16 to increase their record to 3-0. It’s probably the biggest win in Al Golden’s tenure as head coach at Temple, and it’s Temple’s first win over a BCS team since beating Syracuse in 2004. Best of all, it’s sweet revenge over a Connecticut team that beat Temple in overtime two years ago and on a¬†controversial¬†out of bounds call three years ago. In addition, it’s great to beat a team from the Big East, which kicked Temple out of the conference a few years ago. Perhaps the best sign for Temple was the reemergence of Bernard Pierce, who exploded for 169 yards and three touchdowns. It doesn’t get easier for Temple, which plays three straight road games, including a really tough one next week at Penn State. So can Temple shock the world next week against the Nittany Lions?

    Temple will stun Penn State. You saw it here first. I remember that UConn game 2 years ago. Not that I follow college football (can’t take all that rah-rah stuff), but Temple got robbed in that game.

    I met Temple AD Bradshaw 4 years ago or so when they switched conferences, and he predicted all this. I guess I have to root for Temple even though my college (Drexel U) is undefeated in football since 1972.
