In a game from NCAAF Week 4, we will see Tulsa at Temple.
The Temple Owls look for their first home win of the season against a Tulsa side that is not so convincing. The Temple Owls have lost five of their last six home games. Frank Nutile is completing 52.4 percent of his passes for 401 yards, four touchdowns, and four interceptions. Ryquell Armstead is their leading rusher with 256 yards on 54 carries.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane haven’t won a single game on the road since nearly two years. Luke Skipper is completing 61.3 percent of his passes for 521 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions. Shamari Brooks leads the way with 310 yards and four touchdowns so far and in total, they are averaging 210 yards per contest.
The Temple Owls beat Maryland as big underdogs last weekend and now they are being favored by a touchdown. I do not believe that they will cover the spread given their quarterback woes and also the fact that they are 1-5 against the spread when they are the favorites to win by at least 5 points. Temple also prefers running the football and milking the clock. Therefore, I think that it will be a close game.
