Friday night on ESPNU features the UMass Minutemen – who will be looking for their first win of the year – on the road against the Temple Owls looking to win as they head off for conference play next week.
Historically, the UMass Minutemen have been one of the worst FBS schools in the nation. Since 2012, UMass has compiled a record of 9-47.
However, it seems as though things are finally heading in the right direction. While the Minutemen haven’t recorded a win this year they have been competitive in all three of their games this year.
The Minutemen have lost by three, ten, and ten and while a win on the road against Temple would be nice another tight, competitive game would be a moral victory for those associated with UMass.
Historically, the Temple Owls have been a sneaky good ATS team over the last couple of years.
However, Temple was unable to keep it competitive against Notre Dame and they barely squeaked by Villanova.
Which was a somewhat disappointing win as Temple were favored by 17 points in that one.
It was a frustrating game for Temple on both sides of the ball. Temple couldn’t stop the passing attack of Villanova and they couldn’t get them off the field.
Villanova went 9-for-17 on the third down and they threw for 382 passing yards. Plus, Temple only ran for 79 yards.
They’ll look to do better against UMass.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Pick
I don’t see many points being scored in this one. Temple has yet to show much offense thus far. I do think they’ll be able to punch in a few scores and keep UMass off the board for the most part.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Under 52.5
It should be a somewhat competitive game, but overall, I believe the best bet would be taking the under. Plus, there is scheduled to be rain in the forecast. If it does rain, look for a sloppy game overall with not much scoring.
