The Temple Owls and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will both be looking to go 1-0 on the season when they meet at Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday.

ABOUT TEMPLE (2016: 10-4, 7-1 American Athletic Conference): Geoff Collins, formerly the defensive coordinator at Florida, takes over on the sidelines for the Owls, who enter Week 1 with uncertainty at the quarterback position. Several quarterbacks could play – or even potentially start – against the Irish as Collins noted he is “not opposed to playing those guys in different series going into the game. That is what we are leaning toward now.” Haason Reddick, the 13th overall pick in the NFL draft, leaves a huge hole at linebacker, while guard Dion Dawkins was chosen 50 picks later and must be replaced, as well.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (2016: 4-8): The left side of the Notre Dame offensive line is loaded with NFL prospects Quenton Nelson at guard and Mike McGlinchey at tackle. Their stability will be a key to the success of Wimbush, who played sparingly as a freshman but fortunately will have some impressive weapons and his disposal this season. Josh Adams returns after scampering for a team-high 933 yards last season, while Equanimeous St. Brown – team bests of 58 catches, 961 receiving yards and nine TDs – also is back..

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Fighting Irish listed as 18½-point favorites versus the Owls, while the game’s total is sitting at 56 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42.

Coming off its worst season in almost a decade, Notre Dame begins the 2017 campaign unranked heading into Saturday’s showdown with visiting Temple. The Fighting Irish went 4-8 a season ago, putting additional pressure on coach Brian Kelly as he enters his eighth season in South Bend.

Kelly had never lost more than five games in a season with Notre Dame before last year’s tumultuous campaign that featured seven losses by eight points or less. Quarterback DeShone Kizer is now starting for the Cleveland Browns and sophomore Brandon Wimbush, who redshirted in 2016, is ready to take the reigns under center. “There’s not a throw he can’t make,” said first-year offensive coordinator Chip Long. “His velocity, the way it comes out of his hands is tremendous. Throws a really nice, deep ball. He’s doing a lot better job with just his presence in the pocket, understanding when he needs to evade and doing a nice job throwing on the run.” The Owls won seven of their final eight games last year – a hot stretch that cost them coach Matt Rhule (now at Baylor) – but are big underdogs in their season opener.

Last time out for Notre Dame, they were a 45-27 loser as they battled Trojans on the road. Notre Dame failed to cover in the match as a +17.5-point underdog, while 72 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Last time out for Temple, they were a 34-26 loser as they battled Demon Deacons on the road. Temple failed to cover in the match as a -10.5-point favorite, while 60 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
