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.

I currently work for the Sports Network. It's the best job ever! I am a 2010 graduate of Temple University where I majored in broadcast journalism, I LOVE SPORTS! That's why I am here. I have a vast knowledge and want to share my athletic intelligence with the world. Some people like to spend their time shooting down aliens in Halo; I like to spend my time watching sports, current and old. It's my passion! I got asked one time how I can watch a game over again when I already know the outcome. 5 minutes later, he's watching Happy Gilmore reciting all of the lines from the movie. Hypocrite! As for my favorite sports teams, I've been a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan. My favorite athlete is Allen Iverson. He didn't like practice that much, but when it came to gametime, no one let it all out on the floor like Iverson. He is absolutely beloved in the city of Brotherly Love. For college athletics, obviously I pay close attention to Temple. (Yes, football too) Even before I stepped foot on Temple's campus for the 1st time in 2005, I was a fan. Oh the good old days of John Chaney! Some other tidbits about myself, I love cheesesteaks, I hydrate myself with Welch's Grape Juice and Snapple. I love the HBO show Entourage. Also, when is Kenny Powers making his much anticipated return in Eastbound and Down!
