THREE THINGS TO WATCH
* After two games of basically winning with a vanilla offense, the Owls will display a more wide-open scheme against Penn State.
* Temple defensive tackle Shahid Paulhill was injured while receiving an illegal chop block at Akron. Look for Kamal Johnson to start in place of Paulhill or receive a lot of playing time.
* The Nittany Lions have solid receivers, while the Owls cornerbacks have given up passing plays at the start of their first two games. How will Temple’s corners stack up against Penn State?
THREE THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW
* Temple’s radio color commentator Steve Joachim played for both teams. He lettered quarterback at Penn State in 1971 before transferring to Temple.
*While an assistant coach at Florida, Addazio tried to recruit Penn State tailback Silas Redd to the Gators.
*The Owls have won 11 of their last 12 games at Lincoln Financial Field.
