Friday night showcases a very underrated 3-0 team as the Temple Owls travel to Charlotte to take on the 49ers.
Temple improved to 3-0 last week after knocking off Massachusetts 25-23.
Charlotte comes in off a loss to Florida Atlantic at home to fall to 2-2. Kick off is set for 7:00 on CBSC.
Temple has flown under the radar themselves, which is quite shocking considering their opening season win was against Penn State.
Temple’s season has been quite impressive as they’ve knocked off Temple, Cincinnati, and Massachusetts en route to their perfect mark.
The Owls 25-23 win over Massachusetts last week was completely drama filled and featured them scoring 5 points over the final 1:20 to secure the win.
Temple returned a PAT for 2 points and followed that up with a game winning field goal with just 12 seconds remaining to secure a monumental win.
QB PJ Walker finished with 391 yards on 28 of 48 passing to go along with a touchdown and 2 interceptions. Temple’s rush game was led by RB Jahad Thomas who finished with 66 yards on 25 carries.
The 49ers had a chance to make a solid statement when they welcomed in Florida Atlantic last week. Unfortunately for them, they couldn’t generate any sort of offense as they managed just a late touchdown in a 17-7 lost.
QB Lee McNeil finished 11 of 31 for just 89 yards and threw for 4 interceptions. QB Matt Johnson faired no better as he went 0 for 3 with 2 interceptions.
The lone bright spot for Charlotte came from their run game. RB Kalif Phillips finished with 165 yards on 29 carries and was really the only offensive playmaker for the 49ers in the contest.
The only score for Charlotte came from Tank Norman who returned an interception for 28 yards for a pick six.
