Two local rivals will tee it up again Friday, in the fourth annual Mayor’s Cup football game, between Temple and Villanova Universities, at Lincoln Financial Field.
Not a whole lot went right for Villanova in that season-opening 42-7 loss to Temple in the “Mayor’s Cup” game last Thursday.
Pierce gave Owls’ first-year coach Steve Addazio a neatly wrapped first victory Thursday night, rushing for 147 yards and tying a career high with three touchdowns in Temple’s dominating 42-7 victory over Villanova before a good crowd of 32,638 at Lincoln Financial Field.
The college football season in Philadelphia kicks off tonight at Lincoln Financial Field, as Temple and Villanova battle for the Mayor’s Cup.
While the Wildcats are a national power, there are a lot of new faces on this roster, and many of the players who have been integral to their success in recent years have moved on.
This is Steve Addazio’s first training camp as the Owls’ head coach. He took over the program from Al Golden, who left to take the Miami (Fla.) job.
