Uconn Huskies at Temple Owls
Saturday, November 30, 2019 at 3:30 PM (Lincoln Financial Field)
TEM -28 O/U 49
The UCONN Huskies (2 - 9, 0 - 7 CONF) are on the road this week as they square off against the Temple Owls (7 - 4, 4 - 3 CONF). Temple will be hosting this game at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA. UCONN will come into this matchup reeling after having lost four out of their last five games. Temple will be looking to rebound from an edge-of-their-seat loss to #19 Cincinnati just a week ago. Temple will be heavily favored in this matchup.
The UCONN Huskies come into this game scoring just 19 PPG on offense while averaging 346 yards from scrimmage. QB Jack Zergiotis (1,532 yards, 8 TD, 11 INT) has been inconsistent at best and his lack of ball control has been hard to overcome. UCONN is surrendering 40 PPG on defense which places even more pressure on the offense. UCONN has to play a clean game on offense while limiting their defensive mistakes.
The Temple Owls will be coming into this game feeling pretty good about themselves. Temple is scoring 26 PPG on offense while holding opponents to just 24 PPG. The Owls are paced by the play of smooth QB Anthony Russo (2,486 yards, 19 TDs, 11 INTs). If Russo can get into a rhythm, this game might be over before halftime rolls around. Temple is surrendering 24 PPG on defense while showing vulnerability against the run.
The Huskies offense is very weak on the year and does not look that good at all. Look for the Huskies offense to continue to struggle, but the Owls offense does not make up enough of a difference too cover the spread. We like Temple to defeat UCONN in this game. Final Score Prediction, Temple Owls win, but do not cover 27 - 14.
