Steve Addazio was PUMPED about this win. Or angry. Or possibly constipated. One of the three.
Another impressive performance from the Temple Owls has them one win away from bowl eligibility and continuing their stay atop the conference - and yet all another dominant win has me thinking is "what the hell happened against Toledo?"
The Owls held Buffalo's Branden Oliver to 13 carries for 43 yards in the first half, while Bernard Pierce ran for 85 yards and a score in the first quarter. Chester Stewart completed his first five passes, while Chazz Anderson completed half of his in the opening half.
Pierce finished the game with 152 yards and two scores despite not playing the last quarter and a half, which sufficiently sums up this game as far as I'm concerned. More impressively, since that hideous showing against Toledo, Temple's last two games have seen their opponents cross midfleid four times and reach the red zone zero times in 21 offensive possessions. That is crazy good. Outside of the Toledo game, they have outscored their opponents 166-10 in the first three quarters. They now get to face a Bowling Green team that has allowed 979 rushing yards in their last three games. I think I know how this one might go...
