Temple has a friend in Kent State.
The Golden Flashes’ 27-15 victory over Bowling Green on Saturday enables the Owls to, once again, control their own destiny in regards to reaching the Mid-American Conference title game.
Temple (5-3, 3-2 Mid-American) leads Ohio (5-3, 2-2) and Miami of Ohio (3-5, 2-2) by a half-game atop the MAC East Division standings. Bowling Green (4-5, 2-3) dropped a full-game behind the Owls.
A victory over Kent State (2-6, 1-3) would have put the Falcons in a first-place tie. And Bowling Green would have owned the tiebreaker because of last weekend’s 13-10 victory over the Owls.
