After Penn State lost at home to Ohio and Pittsburgh lost at home to Youngstown State in the opening week, there were some that jokes that perhaps Temple was the best college football team in the state of Pennsylvania. Nobody is making that joke now. The Owls once again struggled to move the ball offensively and the secondary was picked apart by Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin en route to a 24-6 Penn State win. With the loss, Temple falls to 1-2 on the season.

Temple now faces Big East conference play with long odds at getting bowl eligible. The Owls issues in the secondary and in their own inability to throw the ball effectively will make it very difficult for them to get five more wins. Remember, Temple only plays 11 games this season because of their move to the Big East coming so late in the calendar year.
