College Football Friday Temple Owls at Connecticut Huskies Start Time, Odds, Free Pick

The Temple Owls are on the road in college football action on Friday night, taking on the Connecticut Huskies. The game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ESPN2. The college football odds for the game have the Owls favored to pick up the win on the road.

College Football Odds
Temple -10
Total: 46 points

The total on this one has come down five points from the opener, so we should have a pretty strong defensive battle on our hands. Temple is once again a pretty decent program and they hold the lead in the American East Division standings with a 4-1 record. Temple owns a victory over South Florida from a few weeks back and with three straight wins in conference play the Owls are setting themselves up well for the stretch run.

Each of the remaining games for Temple are winnable, which could put them with nine wins to end the campaign. They have a talented group of running backs with Ryquell Armstead and Jahad Thomas, they’ve combined for better than 1,200 yards on the ground and 20 touchdowns.

UConn is one of the worst offensive teams in the country, averaging only 18.3 points per game. The defense for the Huskies is equally as bad against the run, allowing 290.2 yards on the ground to opponents per game. That’s not good for a team that is facing off against a Temple squad that can run the football effectively.

Free Pick: Temple
