We have reached week eight of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. There are a few games that aren’t the case and that is this game.
The Cincinnati Bearcats make the trip to Lincoln Financial Field to take on the Temple Owls. The Owls have won the last three games played between the two teams.
What a season it has been for the Cincinnati Bearcats and they come into this game having won each of their first six games.
The Bearcats are a run-first team, but they have also used a good passing game to average 38.3 points per game and over 450 yards.
At quarterback they are led by Desmond Ridder who has thrown for 1062 yards, ten touchdowns and two interceptions. In this game they need him to have a big game.
The strength of this team is the on the defensive side of the ball. They are giving up only 13.7 points per game and it has led them to the success.
To win this game they need to have a good showing on both sides of the ball. If one side fails them they won’t have any chance.
On the other side of this matchup is the Temple Owls who come into this game with a 4-3 record and they have won it in a couple of different ways.
Two games ago they beat ECU running up the score winning 49-6. In their last game they took on Navy and it was a tough game, but they came out ahead 24-17.
The Owls are led by Anthony Russo at quarterback who has thrown for 1173 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions.
The touchdown to interception ratio isn’t good, and it needs to be better in this game if they want any chance to come out ahead.
