Miami Ohio (1-8) at Temple (6-2)
The Redhawks finally got their first win of the year last week in a 31-24 win over Toledo. Miami Ohio has been playing better recently as they have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5. Temple became Bowl eligible last week by upsetting Navy on the road 27-24. The Owls have rolled off 6 straight wins since losing at Penn State back in September. They are seeking their first winning record since 1990. Miami Ohio relies mainly on their passing game. Their rushing attack is basically non-exsistent. They’re only averaging 73 yards per game on the ground and only 44 yards a game in their last 3. Temple has a nice balance of run and pass. They average 151 passing and 162 on the ground. Navy shut down the Owls passing game last week holding them to 39 yards passing, but the Owls averaged 8.1 yards a rush for a total of 274 yards. Temple should win this game easily, but will they win by more than 2 touchdowns? Yes, they will.
Pick: Temple -17
