Aside from a surprising less-than-stellar defensive performance, Temple didn’t have much to frown about in Wednesday’s 35-31 setback to Ohio.

The Mid-American Conference East Division game was a thriller until the end. The Owls (5-4, 3-3) found a quarterback in Chris Coyer.  And they played with energy and fire.

“I like the way our team competed. I’d say that,” said Temple coach Steve Addazio, whose squad dropped to 0-3 in games decided by four points or less. “We got to find a way to win these games.

“But, it was different. All I can tell you, it was different out there. And I mean that in a positive way coming off a devastating loss.”

The Owls will look to snap their two-game skid in this upcoming Wednesday’s division matchup against Miami of Ohio (4-5, 3-2) at Lincoln Financial Field.

“Now you got to be able to package [the Ohio performance] and come back next week,” Addazio said. “That’s the tricky part.”
