Don’t Look Ahead
The Mac East will most likely be decided in Temple’s final two games against Ohio and Miami (Oh). But. If Kent State wins this game, all of a sudden they hold the tiebreaker over Temple. The Golden Flashes are currently 3-2 in the Mac.
The Owls have been on a roll the last two weeks with back to back shutout wins over Buffalo and Akron. They won by a combined score of 72-0.
The Kent State defense is an underrated bunch, 26th in the country in points against at 19.8. The offense isn’t great, their top two rushers (Terry and Archer) don’t average more than four yards a carry. Their quarterback, Spencer Keith has eight touchdowns, but also eight interceptions.
Temple quarterback Mike Gerardi has brought a bit of a spark to the Owls passing attack. He’s looked sharp in his two starts thus far.
Both Temple and Kent State played Penn State this year in Happy Valley. The Flashes were shutout 24-0, while Temple hung around until the final minutes, dropping it 22-13.
Prediction- Temple 31-13
The Owls are playing some good football right now. I don’t think Coach Golden will have his team looking ahead to the last two weeks of the season. The last two games are huge, but this one’s pretty big too.
