Temple Has Been Dominating SU & ATS

The Temple Owls have been one of the surprising teams of the season with a perfect 7-0 record, along with fellow AAC members Memphis and Houston. The Owls have also been a solid ATS play during their eight game winning streak, seven this season and one last season, with a 6-2 ATS record. Temple will host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Notre Dame is 19-1 ATS in their last 20 games on the road in October.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of Temple's last five games after winning as an underdog.
  • Temple RB Jahad Thomas has recorded at least one touchdown in every game this season.

Notre Dame is coming off a roller coaster of a game that saw the Irish blow a two touchdown lead, go down by 17 points and rally to win in the fourth quarter. Irish running back C.J. Prosise continues to be the centerpiece of the team’s attack with the senior back rushing for 272 yards and five touchdowns in the past two games.

Temple comes into this game undefeated and ranked inside the Top 25 for the first time since 1979. The Owls are coming off an uncharacteristically jittery performance with 12 penalties for 114 yards in their last win. It will be critical for Temple to keep their emotions in check as they host a showdown with another Top 25 team. The last time they hosted a game this big, most players on the team weren’t even born yet.
