Temple's 2014 football schedule continued to come into form on Wednesday afternoon as the American Athletic Conference announced the Owls' conference opponents.

Temple will play Cincinnati, East Carolina, Memphis and Tulsa at home. The Owls will travel to Central Florida, Connecticut, Houston and Tulane. Dates and times for the games will be released at a later date.

The Owls non-conference schedule is scheduled to open on Aug. 28 at Vanderbilt before hosting Navy on Sept. 6. On Sept. 20 Temple will host Delaware State, a Football Championship Subdivision team, and on Nov. 15 it will travel to Penn State.

Temple has averaged to play 12 games per season over the last four years, which means the Owls schedule is likely complete.
