Huge stand for Temple defense. After a bad punt have Memphis the ball on the Owls' 21, Tigers go nowhere and miss a field goal. Temple still leads 14-9.

Temple kept one of the country's most prolific offenses out of the end zone in the first half. Owls' defense gets a lot of credit for 14-9 lead over Memphis.


Hood spins in for Temple touchdown

David Hood absorbed a couple of hard hits then spun into the end zone for a 14-yard TD to give Temple a 14-6 lead over No. 21 Memphis.

P.J. Walker's TD pass makes history

Watch: (21) Memphis vs. Temple

Temple is a slight favorite over Memphis in Philly today. Tigers are trying to stop a two-game losing skid against an AAC for trying to separate itself in the East Division race.

Don't forget about Memphis-Temple

The Owls can clinch the American's East Division with a win and a South Florida loss, which would keep them in contention for a New Year's Six bowl. Memphis has already been eliminated from the West Division race, which is now down to the winner of the Navy at Houston game. GameDay Kickoff

Clearing up the American title picture

The American's West Division will be decided when Navy and Houston meet in two weeks. As far as the East is concerned, Temple must keep winning to keep USF at bay. What's the early lean on which team will win the conference title? Week 12 betting notes (Insider)

Temple winning over Philly behind Matt Rhule

Matt Rhule and the Temple Owls control their own destiny in the conference and, by extension, their hopes for a New Year's Six bowl.

Better luck next year, Owls

Temple has now lost two of its past three, but losing to unranked USF likely cost the Owls a shot at a New Year's Six bowl. Temple has an opportunity to take a shot at Memphis, but after the Tigers' loss this week, it won't mean nearly as much for the Owls. Winners and losers in the CFP race

USF uses big plays to upset No. 22 Temple (1:05)
