It’s time for another battle in Philadelphia as the Huskies will travel on the road to take on the Temple Owls.
The Huskies are getting a bit desperate as they are looking for a solid conference win as the Owls are looking to get above the .500 mark.
The Huskies need a win here as their 2017 season is slowly slipping away from them. They need this conference win as they open this game as 12 point underdogs.
The Huskies are riding a four-game losing streak and a road win would make history as they have not won a road game since November of 2015. Let’s just say it has been while for this Huskies team.
On the season, quarterback Bryant Shirreffs is completing only 66.7% of his passes which translates to 1,475 total yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions.
Not a horrible performance by the quarterback as that has been the only shining piece of this offense. His favorite targets Arkeel Newsome and Keyion Dixon have combined for 558 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
On the flip side, the defense is allowing a season high 43.6 points per game and over 570 yards of total offense. The quarterback may keep them in the game, but the defense lets that opportunity fall fast.
The Temple Owls have a huge chance to get above .500 as they face the Huskies who have not won a road game in over two years. With heading back to home, the Owls have won eight of their last nine home games.
Leading the charge this season is quarterback Logan Marchi who is completing 53.9% of his passes for a total of 1,302 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Marchi must fix those interceptions as it’s getting near the conversation of bringing in the backup.
Marchi does have some favorite receivers as Isaiah Wright and Keith Kirkwood have combined for 607 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
On the flip side, the defense is not as bad as the Huskies as the Owls are giving up 26 points per game, with allowing 424 yards. The captain Quincy Roche is leading the team with his five sacks.
