2022 marked a disappointing campaign for the Temple Owls. They picked up a lonely 3 wins and went 1-7 in conference play. But with Stan Drayton’s teething problems now out of the way, the Owls look set to build on the positives that did present themselves in an otherwise disastrous year.
Temple Football Odds: Owls +550 to win Big Ten in 2023
As you can see, Temple might not be the best team to bet on this year when it comes to winning the AAC. With that said, there could be some serious value.
E.J Warner, son of NFL Hall of Famer, Kurt Warner, will be the starting quarterback in 2023. He’ll also be throwing behind a dominant offensive line when it comes to pass protection. If he can build a rapport with Amad Anderson, who put up 479 yards last year, then this Temple offense could see a spike in production.
Then, there’s the linebackers. Unlike their pro Philadelphia counterparts, the Owls have a ridiculously talented linebacker group. Layton Jordan had picks last year along with 9 sacks and 3 forced fumbles, and Jordan Magee had 50 tackles and 4 sacks of his own.
The Owls have all the right pieces to at least take a step in the right direction this year, they just have to put it all together.
