Following Temple Football’s Week 6 conference loss to Memphis, the Owls sat at 3-3 on the season, and still had 6 more games that were must win games if they wanted any chance at an AAC Championship game. The question looming was largely, where does this team go now?
That answer never meant anything to this unit. They went on to win all 6 of those games, with an astounding +115 point differential, and they earned a spot to play on national television against Navy on Saturday in the American Athletic Championship game on Saturday. In the Owls week 12 victory East Carolina, they hoisted the AAC East division title for the second straight season on Lincoln Financial Field.
Watch the SportsDesk’s 10-minute recap of Matt Rhule’s unit and their journey they took to reach the coveted championship game in 2016.
