The Memphis Tigers are coming off of their first loss of the year to UTSA, so they should be highly motivated when they take on the Temple Owls as big favorites here on Saturday.
Temple on the other hand are coming off of an excellent performance beating Wagner in a romp by a score of 41-7, so they will also be feeling quite good about themselves going into Lincoln Financial for this one.
A lot of what Memphis did in that last game against UTSA was good, but they just could not stop UTSA running back Sincere McCormack who burned the Tigers front 7 for 184 yards and 3 touchdowns. The coaching staff will need to address that because Temple has the tape and I am sure they are looking to do something similar in terms of rushing.
QB Seth Henigan and wide receiver Sean Dykes showed serious chemistry with Dykes coming down with 167 yards on 6 receptions, but with the way the Temple secondary looks that could be a tough ask in terms of a path to victory for the road team with the Owls secondary only allowing 107.8 passing yards per game.
The Temple Owls have a pretty special looking receiver themselves with Calvin Austin 3 already totaling 553 yards and a whopping 7 TD’s and he looks to be in an excellent spot here, as the Tigers secondary is a bit of a mess.
The real concern for the Owls is how they have performed whenever they have played a decent team, as they seem to be taking care of business against the bad teams and getting absolutely crushed whenever they play a decent opponent.

I think a lot of the statistics on both sides are a bit misleading just based on the teams these two teams have played. I do not think the Owls secondary is going to be completely lock-down, as they have shut down some bad teams and the good teams have got up on them early and have not really needed to throw much.
With that said, I do think that Memphis will be able to establish the run effectively and then take shots deep. I also think the Owls trend of getting blown out whenever they play a decent team will hold up here and so I am rolling with the Tigers on the road at -11.
