Will Temple snap skid to Ohio?

Ohio University has had Temple's number.

The Bobcats own a 3-1 series advantage after winning the last two meetings. 

Is this the season the Owls snap their skid? Or will Ohio, once again, be an unmovable roadblock in Temple's path to a Mid-American Conference championship?

We will find out in Wednesday's night much-anticipated MAC East Division showdown in Athens, Ohio.

The Owls (5-3, 3-2) will travel to Peden Stadium with a half-game lead over the Bobcats (5-3, 2-2) atop the division standings. The victor will have the inside track to winning the division and reaching the MAC championship game in Detroit on Dec. 2.
