Owls To Fight for the AAC Title

Temple Football is Texas bound. The Owls sights are now set on the Houston Cougars in the inaugural championship game of the American Athletic Conference.

The Owls dominated in a 27-3 victory against the University of Connecticut Huskies on their home turf.

While the team was excited to have won the AAC East Champion title, they’re focused on putting their best foot forward.

“You know, it’s a hostile environment, but we’ve been through a lot of great experiences,” said Coach Matt Rhule. “I think our team is ready, I think we’re playing our best football right now.”

The Owls believe staying true to their process will help them clinch a victory, so that’s what they plan on doing.

“It’s just another game,” said star senior Tyler Matakevich. “Except this time, after the game, you get a trophy.”

The last time the two teams met up, Houston beat Temple 31-10.

The AAC Championship in the Lonestar state will begin at noon on Saturday, December 5th. The game will be nationally televised on ABC.
