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.
No. 14 Louisville (10-2)
No. 25 Rutgers ( 9-3)
No. 37 Cincinnati (8-4)
No. 47 USF (7-5)
No. 51 Pitt (7-5)
No. 57 Syracuse (6-6)
No. 76 UConn (5-7)
No. 101 Temple (3-9)
