Temple stepped up a notch in competition last season and it showed. As a member of the Mid-American Conference in 2011, the Owls won nine games, including the New Mexico Bowl. The team upgraded to the Big East in 2012 and finished a disappointing 4-7.
What's left of the Big East is now the American Athletic Conference and Temple is along for the ride. The schedule, which includes the opener at Notre Dame, will once again be a challenge for new coach Matt Rhule's team.
Thanks to Kelli.
