At Philadelphia, 5 p.m. PT (ESPN2)
Ohio U +3 at Temple (42)
Only alums and bettors who simply must have action will be watching. Both teams are 2-5 and fodder for elite teams. The visiting Bobcats dropped their first four games, but two came against Ohio State and Northwestern. A third loss was to MAC power Central Michigan with the three combined setbacks by a total of just 23 points.
Temple opened the season with a 35-7 win over Army, then dropped four straight including losses to Penn State and Connecticut. The Owls fell only 12-9 in overtime to UConn, evidenced of their struggles on offense. In fact both Ohio U and Temple have managed less than 20 points in over half their games. No wonder the opening total of 43½ dropped to 42. Still this figures to be 17-14 type game. UNDER.
