The Temple Owls don’t do anything right, and their offense may be the worst in all of college football. However, we’re not going to act like the Tulsa Golden Hurricane are lighting the world on fire as they’re piling the up the losses as well and their offense is 128th against the run and 119th in scoring offense. I’m not just laying big chalk with Tulsa because Temple stinks. If anything, weird things happen in weekday games. Give me Temple and the free touchdowns.
