Note: The Redzone TD% and Redzone TD% Defense are calculated by me and not ranked by the NCAA. Determining who has the advantage in these categories is strictly my arbitrary judgment.
Quick thoughts: Don't look now, but I think we've come across a team that's worse than Penn State in offense.
Temple's defense is very legit (with Rhule at the helm, that should come as no surprise), but their offense has been sputtering this year. The Owls are a bizarro Penn State this year, very close to how PSU looks statistically--with a slightly worse defense (because, compared to the PSU D, how could you not be slightly worse?), and though their offense is scoring more points, they're putting up less yards. Special teams and turnovers also seem to be strengths of the squad in Rhule's second year.
Once again, much like last week's matchup with Indiana, if PSU can get at or near what Temple's allowing per game they should be golden and win going away--particularly on the ground, and on the scoreboard.
What do you guys think?
