Temple's scheduled football game at Maryland on Sept. 7, 2013 has been postponed to a yet-to-be-determined season.

The Terrapins, instead, will play Old Dominion, an Football Championship Subdivision school in the Colonial Athletic Conference.

Temple's current nonleague games for next season are at Notre Dame (Aug. 31), at Idaho (Sept. 28) and versus Army (Oct. 19) at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Temple vs. Maryland game was scheduled prior to the March announcement that the Owls would rejoin the Big East Conference. Since then, Temple has been making changes to its nonconference schedule. Now that they're in a BCS conference, the Owls want a manageable nonleague schedule to help get the six wins needed to become bowl eligible.
