Game notes[edit]

Villanova[edit]

1 2 3 4 Total
Wildcats 0 0 14 13 27
Owls 0 10 7 7 24

Temple blew a 10-point lead over the Wildcats to ultimately lose 27-24 to the Villanova Wildcats to open the year on a sour note. This game was similar to many games last year where Temple would have a lead but be unable to finish off an opponent, such as the overtime loss to Navy and the Hail Mary loss to Buffalo last year. After a scoreless first quarter, Temple got a 10-0 halftime lead, then made it a 17-7 lead midway through the third after each scored, and Villanova scored to make it 17-14, but Temple would score again early in the 4th quarter to make it 24-14, but Villanova would shut out the Owls the rest of the way, making it 24-17 on a field goal soon after, late in the game Villanova tied it up, and just as Temple was about to go for the win, a turnover led to a Villanova field goal that gave them their first win of the year and put Temple at 0-1 to start the new year. It was also Villanova's first win against a I-A opponent since 2003, ironically it Temple. Villanova leads the series.


Penn State[edit]

1 2 3 4 Total
Owls 3 0 3 0 6
Nittany Lions 7 14 3 7 31

Temple hadn't beaten Penn State since 1941, and that nearly 70-year losing streak remained intact, but the Owls kept themselves in the game early with a field goal and successful onside kick. Afterwards, the momentum they had gained was quickly lost as Penn State made it 21-3 at halftime and 24-6 after three. Penn State put the game out of reach with a touchdown run by Stephon Green. Soon afterwards, Penn State put their backups in, but were unable to score any more points. With the 6-31 loss, this now makes four straight games that the Owls have failed to score at least a touchdown on Penn State.

With the huge blowout win over Buffalo, Temple was able to get revenge for the previous two years, including a last second loss on a Hail Mary and a blowout loss the year before. This also gave Temple their first win of the year.

Ball State[edit]

Cardinals 0 0 13 6 19
Owls 10 0 7 7 24

Despite going 12-2 last year and being ranked as high as #12, the Ball State Cardinals remained winless this year after giving Temple a game that appeared closer than it really was. Temple took a 10-0 lead, but fell behind 13-10, but soon retook the lead and would hold on for the 24-19 win, giving up a meaningless touchdown on the game's final play to make the game look like a nailbiter. Temple also was 3-0 in the MAC and 3-2 overall with the win.
