ATHENS, Oh. (CBS) — The Temple Owls are in Athens, Ohio to battle the Ohio University Bobcats tonight in a critical MAC matchup.

Both teams are 5-3 overall this season.  While Temple is 3-2 in the MAC, Ohio is 2-2, a half game behind the Owls in the East Division.

Temple will be trying to bounce back from a frustrating defeat last time out.  The Owls committed 12 penalties in a 13-10 loss to Bowling Green on October 22nd (see related story).

These two teams met at  Lincoln Financial Field last season, the Bobcats getting out of town with a 31-23 win.  Temple RB Matt Brown rushed for 72 yards and a touchdown in that defeat.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with the radio voice of the Owls, KYW’s own Harry Donahue, to talk about the matchup.
