The Temple Owls are going to need a break from conference play as they were shocked at home from a 28-24 loss to Connecticut this past weekend.
For the Army Black Knights are continuing their impressive season with a recent 28-27 win against Eastern Michigan.
The Temple Owls are hoping the past couple of years will be the start of a new future in the football program as they reached 10 game seasons for the first time in back-to-back years.
However the 2017 season has been all but not hopeful as they come into this matchup with a 3-4 record.
The Temple Owls were shocked at home as they lost 28-24 against Connecticut which proves this is all but a dreadful season.
Even though the Owls had almost over 500 yards of total offense in that game, two costly turnovers late in the game would be the deciding factor in that game.
Quarterback Logan Marchi led the team with connecting on 33 of his 54 passes for 356 yards with a touchdown and interception. That one interception would be turned into six.
Army Black Knights
Unlike the Temple Owls, the Army Black Knights are having a solid season so far as they come into this matchup with a 5-2 record and one win away from being bowl eligible for the second straight year.
They have a huge opportunity to get that eligible as the face the Owls who have been struggling all year long. The Black Knights almost lost their third game of the season as Eastern Michigan made it a thriller late last weekend.
The Black Knights defense would hold off a two point conversation as the Eagles were hoping to seal the deal instead of going into OT. The Black Knights are led by their ground attack as they totaled 413 yards on the ground against the Eagles.
All the Black Knights do is run the ball as they have multiple packages with the quarterback and running back for options. If nobody has stopped it, don’t change it.
