The Owls seem to have found their rhythm by winning games with a strong defense and solid rushing attack.  Memphis isn't the same team as they were last year with Paxton Lynch and prior to playing Ole Miss their schedule wasn't much of a challenge.  Temple has the 13th ranked passing defense in the country this season and I think as long as if the Owls can stick to their run game and limit their turnovers, Temple will be able to keep this one within the number which is why I am taking Temple and the points.
