NCAAF: Temple, Penn State impressive, but big test looms for one

So one game I think we all knew who would win, and another one I couldn’t have been more wrong with. So we will start with Penn State, who was impressive in their homecoming win over Indiana despite yet another slow start which had fans wondering if they would even get going. That is until midway through the 1st quarter, when Christian Hackenberg threw the 1st of 2 touchdown passes on the game, and the rest was history as Penn State won 29-7. Hackenberg was 21 for 39, threw for 262 yards and 2 touchdowns, while also running for 2 more touchdowns in what was probably his best performance of the year. Same could be said for the offense as a whole as they put up 420 yards of offense for the game.

Next up for Penn State is perhaps the game of the year as the Nittany Lions travel to Columbus to take on top ranked Ohio State who is coming off a 49-28 thrashing of Maryland.

As for Temple, I hate to admit when I’m wrong, but I was wrong in this case. Temple came out on Saturday and put a hurting on Tulane, in their own homecoming game, by a score of 49-10. The Owls were led by QB P.J Walker who went 11 for 15 with 183 yards and 2 touchdowns. The ground game also did its job by racking up 122 yards and 3 TDs, while the defense forced 2 interceptions on the game.

Now mind you this all came after Temple fumbled 5 times early on in the game, so this goes to show that despite the big win, it was nowhere near perfect or pretty for that matter. Next for Temple is a Saturday night game of their own at home against an 0-6 UCF team that just can’t seem to win a game, yet at the same time could potentially hand Temple their 1st loss if the year. This reporter’s prediction? Don’t give one!
