Live blog: Temple at Villanova

You've probably noticed that this summer has been quite a whirlwind for me. But now it's September, which means we slowly turn back to college sports as the new academic year begins.

You've probably noticed that this summer has been quite a whirlwind for me. But now it's September, which means we slowly turn back to college sports as the new academic year begins.

We start the local football season with the Mayor's Cup showdown between Temple and Villanova. There's been plenty written about both teams in the local media, and plenty of trash talk thrown around by both teams' fans. Now it's time to settle the matter on the field, at least for the next 12 months.

And yes, in case you're wondering, it will be a bit strange for me to be at the Linc and see gridiron lines on the field. It's been a while.
