The Owls are averaging more points per game (73.8) than they they have in five seasons. We know that all 7-foot-6 of Tacko Fell can give disrupt offenses, but Temple has faced him five times (three wins) and this last version of Fran Dunphy’s North Broad Street Boys seems to have some more firepower than usual. And the Owls may just want to erase the images of the last time they traveled down to Knight territory in January and posted a 39 on the scoreboard (just 17 in the second half). It is an early conference slate shot that Temple gets at the league favorite. Expect them to bring the cavalry.

Pick: Temple Over 64.5
