Temple Avoids Disaster Beats #21 Nevada 27-24 The Temple Owls have now matched last year's win total of 2. They also knocked off their first ranked opponent since the 2013 Owls beat Notre Dame. Last year's team tried to rear its ugly head near the end of this game with Temple nearly squandering a 17 point 4th qtr lead all in the closing minutes. The news isn't all good for QB J. Gray. After another dismal performance in which he was unable to move Temple at all, Coach Radio made the announcement that Sophomore J. Green would get the nod next game. Green brings speed and playmaking to the position without sacrificing too much arm. Coach Radio also seemed pleased with the way he ran the Pistol part of the playbook and will look to add more of that dimension as the season progresses. Temple is now 2-0 but the road ahead gets rough quickly. Temple is off next week before traveling to Waco to face the Baylor Bears in week 5. Week 6 brings the Iowa St Cyclones to Philly. No time for Owls to be patting their backs.
