Temple has Been Great at Bouncing Back

Temple Football

Temple is coming off a loss for just the second time this season, but the Owls have traditionally shown value in that spot going 10-4 ATS in their past 14 games after a loss. Temple will try to bounce-back when they host the tough Memphis Tigers Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Memphis is 4-1 SU and 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a loss.
  • Temple is 1-6 SU in their last seven home games in November.
  • Paxton Lynch has completed over 70 percent of his career passes against Temple.

A loss against the unranked USF will likely cost Temple an appearance in a New Year’s Six Bowl and have now lost two of their past three after starting the season 7-0. Temple still sits atop the AAC East, but will need to fight to keep a hold of that position with USF breathing down their necks.

Things aren’t looking much better in Memphis as the team lost their past two and have gone from a potential playoff team to likely playing in a lesser bowl come December.
