Temple only has one result so far this season but we think they are going to be kind of good.
USF has multiple results and we know that they are kind of bad.
Temple has to show us something this week or we are going to have to start reshaping our thoughts. .
USF is 1-3 and they have not been competitive in any of the losses. The win, against the Citadel. Losing to Notre Dame and Cincinnati are one thing but they just got stomped by East Carolina.
I was listening to a podcast the other day and they cited USF as a positive regression team because some of their offensive conversion numbers are very dreary. There is some validity there but this is also a team in transition in a pandemic.
The offense has to get better to give themselves a shot. They are averaging only 14.5ppg and that number drops to just over 10 against FBS competition.
The defense has been strong against the pass but that is in part because it is so easy to run on them – 3rd against pass, 67th against the run.
There are lots of areas for improvement for new coach Jeff Scott.
Temple’s lone result was a loss to Navy last week. Navy is a bad team to start your season against though Air Force and BYU showed no difficulty in doing so.
Temple usually has a strong defense but you have to throw out what you saw last week in terms of splits. Nacy always runs the ball and almost never throws.
Senior quarterback Anthony Russo looked pretty sharp against Navy. He is not elite but he rarely costs them the game either.
Look for Temple to have success running the football and eating clock. That will set them up for some bigger plays in the passing game. Simple plan that should work.

This one is a tough one to pull the trigger on. I want to go with Temple but we have only seen so much on the field to date.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Under 53.5
Fall is here and we are starting to see some weather. I think this one will be a sleepy game, not a ton of offense from either side. Or Temple could dominate and we still get that under.
When the Owls are good they don’t usually whoop teams 55-7. But 33-10 could be in range. I can get behind something like that.
