What’s Going To Happen
Temple has settled into a decent bowl spot – at least, as decent as one can be in the American Athletic with its awful tie-ins – with a seven-win season. However, beat UConn, get to eight wins, and all of a sudden this looks like a really, really strong first season under Rod Carey.
UConn is playing its last game as an American Athletic Conference member, paying $17 million to bolt after being really, really bad at football.
The Huskies battled with East Carolina last week in a 31-24 loss, but the defense has been a wreck, the offense hasn’t been able to do anything consistently well, and now the pain and sadness are almost over.
Temple’s pass rush is fantastic, UConn”s isn’t. The Owls will live behind the UConn line for long stretches, the passing game will click early on, and this will be well over by halftime.
However, Temple doesn’t score enough to make this a total wipeout. It controls games, and lets the D do the work. Even so, there won’t be any drama.
