The Temple Owls meet the Boston College Eagles in week 3 college football action from Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday afternoon.

The Boston College Eagles will look to build on their 45-28 win over UMass in their last outing. Phil Jurkovec has thrown for 325 yards and 3 scores on 67.9% passing while Dennis Grosel’s tossed for 243 yards and a score on 80% passing. Patrick Garwo leads BC in rushing with 15 carries for 160 yards while Travis Levy has a pair of touchdowns on the ground for the Eagles this year. Zay Flowers leads Boston College in receiving with 9 catches for 203 yards and a score while Trae Berry has 149 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns for BC this season. Defensively, Shitta Sillah leads the Eagles with 14 total tackles including 9 solo tackles while Jahmin Muse has an interception for BC This season.

The Temple Owls will be out to build off of their first win of the year in a 45-24 win over Akron last time out. Justin Lynch has thrown for 245 yards and a pair of touchdowns with an interception on 73.1% passing while also rushing for 73 yards and Edward Saydee leads Temple’s ground attack with 81 rushing yards. Randle Jones leads Temple’s receivers with 8 catches for 208 yards and both of the team’s receiving TDs this season. On defense, Jordan Magee has a team-high 14 total tackles while Amir Tyler leads Temple with 10 solo tackles and William Kwenkeu has a pair of sacks this season.

Boston College is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. Temple is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the ACC.

I want no part of either of these two teams if we’re being honest, but if forced to pick, I’d side with Temple and the points. The Owls got a confidence win over Akron and while Boston College is the better team, they struggled to put away UMass, which was a dumpster fire for the entire 2019 and 2020 seasons I think Temple can sneak in the back door and get us a cover here, so give me Temple and the points.
