The Villanova Wildcats and the Temple Owls will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Lincoln Financial Field.

ABOUT VILLANOVA (1-0): Ferrante spent 30 years as a Villanova assistant before taking over for the retired Andy Talley in the offseason. In Ferrante’s first game leading the Wildcats, Zach Bednarczyk threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, while Matt Gudzak ran for a career-high 142 yards and two scores. “We’ll take a deep breath. We’ll enjoy this one for probably less than 24 hours,” Ferrante told reporters that day, “and then we’ll be back in the office preparing for the next one.”

ABOUT TEMPLE (0-1): The Owls gave up 606 total yards against the Fighting Irish and never recovered after falling behind 21-3 in the first quarter. Coach Geoff Collins, guiding Temple for the first time, was disappointed, saying that “there have been a lot of fun moments and some exciting moments I was really looking forward to as a first-time head coach, and this was not one of them.” Junior wideout Ventell Bryant (hamstring), the team’s leading receiver in 2016, is expected to play after missing the season opener.

bovada-logo-top-book currently have the Owls listed as 6.5-point favorites versus the Wildcats, while the game’s total is sitting at TBA according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42

For the first time since 2012, Philadelphia rivals Temple and Villanova will square off Saturday. The host Owls are looking to bounce back after a convincing loss at Notre Dame to open their campaign.

Temple was trounced, 49-16, in its Week 1 contest despite a respectable first career start for quarterback Logan Marchi. The sophomore threw for 245 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions and found nine different receivers in the lopsided affair. Ryquell Armstead, who averaged 5.9 yards per carry last season, was limited to 67 yards on 19 attempts and will aim to break out against the Wildcats. FCS member Villanova won its opener under new coach Mark Ferrante and is 1-0 for the first time since 2009.

In their last action, Temple was a 49-16 loser on the road against Fighting Irish. They failed to cover the +19.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (65) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
