Temple vs. UConn series at a glance

Temple has had success against Connecticut.

The Owls own an 8-4 series advantage and won the last meeting, 30-16, two seasons ago at Lincoln Financial Field.

But Saturday’s Big East Conference road game is expected to be a tough one for Temple (2-2, 1-0 Big East).

The Huskies (3-3, 0-1) might have the best defense the Owls will face all season. Temple is winless in games played at Connecticut’s Rentschler Field.  And UConn will have added motivation playing in front of its homecoming crowd.
