Temple couldn’t stop the Villanova passing game last weekend in a 19-17 rivalry loss, and now it has to deal with Tyree Jackson and the Buffalo offense. The Bulls got their tune-up in with a 48-10 win over Delaware State, and it’s about to kick in the offense against a Temple D that was solid against the run, but not strong enough.
Can Frank Nutile get the Owl passing game going? After struggling so much offensively against Villanova, Temple will be a wee bit better against UB, but not quite strong enough, even at home. Jackson and the Bull O will get out to a good start, but it’ll be the running game and late defensive stops that pull it off, showing the MAC world that this really might be the league favorite.
