#23 Temple looks to continue its trek up the Top 25 standings as they get set for a Friday night showdown with the SMU Mustangs.
Temple comes in after their first loss of the season as they took Notre Dame to the brink.
SMU has just been a mess this year as they fell yet again, this time to Tulsa at home.
Temple still remains a Top 25 team, even after dropping their first game of the season last week at home against Notre Dame.
Temple did all they could to give Notre Dame one of their biggest scares of the season, but it went for not as they eventually fell 24-20. Temple actually led late in the game, but couldn’t find a way to slow down the Fighting Irish offense on big plays.
Still, Temple has their eyes set on one goal and one goal only, win the conference championship. Currently, Temple sits first in the AAC East with a 4-0 record. They hold a 2 game lead on both Cincinnati and USF.
Temple is led by RB Jahad Thomas who is one of the best backs in the conference. Thomas has rushed for 904 yards and 13 TDs on the season. However, Thomas is expected to miss this encounter with SMU as he continues to battle a ribs injury.
With him out, QB PJ Walker will have a lot of pressure on him. He struggled against the Fighting Irish defense last week as he finished just 13 for 30 with 188 yards.
The Mustangs told reporters that this is one game they will certainly get up for.
Head Coach Chad Morris told reporters that this is a great opportunity for his team to play a Top team in the nation with the national stage on them. That holds true as SMU really has nothing to play for as they sit 1-7 on the season and have been eliminated from bowl contention.
If SMU wants something to hold their heads up high about its the pure fact that they play good teams. They haven’t schedule any cupcakes like others in the nation.
SMU has lost 7 games against opponents who’s combined record is 42-15. To look into that more, they have lost to 3 current unbeaten teams in the nation.
QB Matt Davis continues to be the weapon and most dangerous playmaker for the Mustangs this season. Davis has thrown for 1779 yards to go along with 14 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. He’s also shown off his dual threat ability as he’s rushed for 450 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Expect him to have a big game if SMU can stay close with Temple.

Temple will struggle if Thomas doesn’t play, that’s clear. However, they have enough weapons to pick apart a weak SMU secondary here and should be able to use their ground game as a big factor.
