The Owls secondary is strong, headed by one of the top safety tandems in the country.
Even though it was a team scrimmage, Temple stayed overnight in a hotel, simulating game-day preparations.
Two weeks before the opener at Notre Dame, Temple coach Geoff Collins wasn't ready to name his starter. He may not be ready to do it publicly before the game.
The receiver position is among the deepest on the Owls, and tight end Kenny Yeboah has big-play potential.
The Owls have to replace all three starting LBs. They will be much younger, but more athletic.
The cornerback, returning from shoulder surgery, has been "everything we expected him to be and more," one coach says.
Junior Ryquell Armstead, who had a team-high 14 rushing touchdowns, leads a group of experienced backs.
The deal with the Yellow Jackets isn't finalized, but it is expected to happen for the home-and-home series.
The Owls might have more depth, but replacing the 32 1/2 combined tackles for loss by Haason Reddick and Praise Martin-Oguike will be difficult.
Just as in the spring, four players are vying for the starting job.
Placekickers Austin Jones, a senior, and Aaron Boumerhi, a sophomore, are vying for the job. "It is a dead heat as of today," Temple special teams coach Ed Foley said after Friday's practice.
Veteran interior linemen Michael Dogbe and Freddie Booth-Lloyd will be the keys in getting the job done.
