Teams heading in opposite directions cross paths

Temple and Miami of Ohio have been heading in opposite directions.

 Having lost to Bowling Green and Ohio, the Owls are riding their first losing streak of the season. The ReddHawks, on the other hand, has won four of their last five contests after starting 0-4.

 Can Temple snap its skid? Or will Miami of Ohio continue its winning ways?

 We will find out in Wednesday’s Mid-American Conference East Division game at the Lincoln Financial Field.

 The Owls  (5-4, 3-3) entertain the RedHawks (4-5, 3-2) in a much-anticipated contest. A victory would make Temple bowl eligible.
