Temple Beats Penn State for the First Time Since 1941

Recommended Posts

o

 

Temple's football teams had gone 0-38-1 in their last 39 games against Penn State before today.

That losing streak ended with today's win over the Nittany Lions in Philadelphia.

It was also Temple's first home win over a Power Five conference school since beating Kansas in 1942.

After spotting the Nittany Lions 10 points in the 1st quarter, Temple dominated the rest of the football game, scoring 27 unanswered points for their first win over Penn State since 1941.

The Temple defense hounded Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg all afternoon, sacking him 10 times on the day.

Temple is 4-0 for the first time since 1974.

Temple's first full football season was in 1930.

The only seasons in which the Owls started out at 4-0 or better were in 1930, 1932, 1935, 1936, 1974, and now 2015.

Aside from a very close loss to Notre Dame, the only other defeat on Temple's 2015 record was to a team that finished the season smoking hot ...... South Florida, who won 8 out of their final 9 games.

The Owls will now play the Houston Cougars (11-1) for the American Athletic Conference championship on Saturday. A possible trip to one of the 6 upper-tier bowl games (Orange, Sugar, Rose, Cotton, Fiesta, and Peach) may be at stake, especially if the one-loss Cougars prevail.

Rumors and News






  • Posts

    • You must admit we run the wide range of opinions here, some have me scratching my head as to what team they actually like.  
    • Other teams aren’t just dropping out of the market because it’s getting late. The crux of dumpster diving is that it’s the scraps no one wants. 
    • Let me amend my last statement a bit. Detroit and Cincy are definitely less appealing destinations then Baltimore. I'd argue the Phillies and White Sox are on the upswing so they'd probably be more appealing to most FAs. I think this discussion might merit it's own thread!
    • The Orioles do not want to sign any free agent pitchers to any deals longer than 3 years.  These 2 guys are simply going to be too expensive and demand too many years. I wish it wasn't so, but the fact that we just got out from under Ubaldo's abysmal 4 year deal is probably not going to help persuade them to rethink their policy.
    • I'd feel much better about signing Cain to a four year deal if he was 27. If they decide to go the route of a speedster, they might be better off signing someone Jarrod Dyson to a one year deal given the uncertainty of the direction in which this team is heading long term. Other than starting pitchers, I don't think they should be giving three or four year deals to any offensive players right now (aside from extending Schoop). This is a team in limbo even if they're too naive to admit it.  And to that point, I wonder how Duquette is able to even sell multi-year deals to respective free agents? Everyone knows that Machado is on his way out and that this team, as constructed, will probably not be able to contend. Why would anyone want to sign a multi-year deal wit the Orioles right now (over another team) unless it's strictly for the money? Short of Miami, I'm not sure there's a less appealing team in the majors right now. And yes, San Diego is bad too, but at least you get to live in San Diego.  
    • The question is, will the OHOF hold their PED use against them?    They’ve kept Raffy out.    We might need to wait until some of the 2012-17 core has retired.    I’d expect Markakis, Hardy, Wieters and Jones all to go in one day.    Manny and Schoop are further away but will get in later.   
    • Could DD simply be waiting for the asking prices to become reasonable and then strike to land two guys like a Cobb & Lynn? Next year there are some great position players who will be Free Agents, but not pitching. With teams trying to limit spending this year why not splurge for two such pitchers and then you could trade them after this year if you need to. The idea being that those teams willing to spend next year will not find much pitching on the market. Could this plan work?
