It’s a great time to be a Temple Owl. School spirit here on campus is at an all time high thanks to the recent success of our basketball and football teams. Currently the football team is 8-2 and in contention to play in the MAC conference championship game. Everyone here on campus is getting pumped for the Owl’s next (ESPN 2) nationally televised home game on Tuesday against Ohio University. Last year the Owls played UCLA in the Eaglebank bowl (their first bowlgame in 30 years!) and this year we’re all hoping the team goes bowling again.Check out this past blog post on the Owl’s bowlgame last December.

In addition to the football team the #22 ranked Temple men’s basketball team opened their season winning both games this past weekend. Personally I’m looking forward to the Owl’s next big home basketball game against nationally ranked Georgetown on December 9th. One of the great things about all our sports games here at Temple is the fact they’re FREE. Unlike some schools where students have to rely on a lottery system to score tickets, Temple hands out student tickets at the door! While our football team plays at Lincoln Financial Field (home to the Philadelphia Eagles) the basketball team plays on campus at the Liacouras Center. Check out this past blog post on the Liacouras Center located right on campus! Next time you’re visiting campus make sure you stick around for a sporting event!
