Two nights after barely escaping a Buffalo team they were favored to beat by almost double digits, the Temple Owls (8-3) will head south down I-95 to take on the Delaware Blue Hens (5-5, 1-0 CAA) in their final contest of the calendar year.
Dec 29, 2011, 12:39 AM EDT
Call it luck, determination or even divine intervention, but whatever it was the Temple Owls are surely grateful. Their 87-85 overtime win against the Buffalo Bulls on Wednesday was as ugly as it was practically inexplicable.

For the first time in the 68-game history of the Holy War, the Villanova Wildcats are scheduled to step foot on the campus of St. Joseph’s University. If that isn’t good enough to get you going, then I don’t what is.
Dec 16, 2011, 6:52 PM EDT
Temple’s matchup with Wyoming is the Owls’ second bowl appearance in the last three seasons, but only their third in the last thirty-three. Having lost the 2009 EagleBank Bowl to UCLA, the program has not claimed a postseason victory since 1979. Fortunately for their hopes of making history, they’ve drawn a very favorable opponent in the Cowboys.

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow—Saturday, December 17—is a huge day for the local collegiate scene. Game times and info for everything from the New Mexico Bowl to the Holy War inside.

Bowl bids, especially in the modern era (when you can qualify even with a losing record), may not mean a lot to other institutions, but they certainly do to Temple. Such an appreciation for what others take for granted is no doubt the product of a history graced with such an opportunity a mere three times over the last thirty-three seasons.
Dec 14, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT
Former Villanova guard Scottie Reynolds has officially signed a free agent contract to join the Utah Jazz.
Dec 10, 2011, 11:14 PM EDT

Shout out to the St. Joe’s Hawks on their big win over Creighton. But you tell us, was their celebration a violation?

Big 5 game. Big East controversy. Big student roll outs. This has the potential to special. The Temple Owls are set to host the Villanova Wildcats from inside the Apollo on Broad. Tip-off is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday evening (ESPN 2 / 1210 AM).
