Temple received a vote in the USA Today/Coaches Poll that was released Sunday.
The Owls (3-1) picked up that vote after upsetting Maryland, 38-7, in Saturday’s nonconference game at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md.
The victory was Temple’s first triumph over an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent. It was also the program’s biggest win since the Owls upset No. 14 Virginia Tech, 28-24, in Blacksburg, Va. in 1998.
