According to College Football News, Temple’s return to the Big East Conference won't have a successful first season.

CFN predicts the Owls will finish last in the conference and have a 3-9 record (However, CFN is definitely wrong about the record. Temple will only play 11 games). The Owls are ranked 101 out of 124 schools in CFN’s post-spring rankings.

Man, one can only assume that Temple coach Steve Addazio will definitely use this as motivation.

Here’s CFN rankings for Big East teams and projected records.
