Opponent Preview: Temple

The CIncinnati Bearcats face one of their stiffest challenges this Saturday evening. The Temple Owls, led by first-year head coach Rod Carey, come to town for a top-notch conference contest.

Temple enters the game with a 7-3 mark. The blemishes on their record are quite startling: blowout losses to SMU and UCF as well as an early-season defeat at the hands of Buffalo.

The wins on Temple’s resume are also impressive: an early win over Big Ten opponent Maryland, a victory over Tulane, and an upset win against the Memphis Tigers.

Temple is led at quarterback by veteran signal caller Anthony Russo, the dean of AAC passers in the 2019 season.
