What’s going on? How’s err’body feeling? Guess what? We’re about to go 5-2-1 versus the spread. 🔥🔥💲💰💰 I like Tulane over Navy, and I liked Boston College getting 35.5 against Clemson, but we’re going with the UCF and Temple game this week, and here it is, the https://noozbuffet.com, Feature Game Analysis. This is NCAA College Football Week 9.
UCF @ TEMPLE
Central Florida is away this week at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 o’clock Saturday night, October 26th. Temple is a 10.5 point underdog at home.
Both teams play in the American Athletic Conference, and both trail Cincinnati. Temple and UCF share the same stats when it comes to records with the exception of Temple losing last week and UCF winning, but respectively, it’s Temple in second place, and UCF in 3rd.
Last week Temple lost to SMU 45-21, (hahaha) and I’m laughing because SMU is very good. They don’t give a fu*k! Temple is hot too though, and Temple was rolling until that game last week. Personally, I don’t think they were ready. Ill-prepared is the word I was thinking of.
So, the Owls are 5-2 now overall. QB Anthony Russo has help in senior WR Isaiah Wright, who leads the team with 5 touchdowns. Wright has the ability to stretch defenses. Junior WR Jadan Blue is a contributor and currently, he’s leading Temple in receptions with 42. He also has 529 total yards receiving. Russo (14 TD’s, 1,674 yards passing) is a senior, and he needs to take over the leadership role this weekend. He’s 6’4 and 235 pounds, he’s not a little guy. He’s a big guy that needs to play big and without mistakes.
In the backfield, Temple features freshman, Re’Mahn (Ray) Davis. Davis averages 5.1 yards per carry. He has a good combination of power and speed at 5’9 210 pounds.
Defensively, senior LB Sean Bradley (57 total tackles) can be menacing, but SMU really exploited their secondary last week. They’ll have to tighten up back there.
Once upon a time…UCF was ranked 15th in the country. Last week the Golden Knights beat East Carolina 41-28. UCF is ranked 3rd in the country in total offense with 553 yards per game! They’re also ranked 8th in passing yards (341 yards per game), but there’s something interesting going on in the backfield.
Junior RB Greg McCrae leads the team in carries (72). He also has 6 touchdowns and guarantees 5.6 yards every time he touches the ball, but the Golden Knights have four speedy guys back there who combine for 1,359 yards of rushing offense. They’re fast.
UCF has a freshman at QB, but Dillion Gabriel is playing like a straight up vet. He passed for 2,000 yards already, and he has 17 touchdowns. Like I said, Temple needs to play better in the secondary this week.
At WR, UCF has a stud in junior Gabriel Davis. Davis (6’3 215) is big, he’s fast, and he’s productive. He’s averaging 119 yards per game, and he has 10 touchdowns.
Temple is home this week, and when the Owls play home, they play with passion. The question is can they slow down Central Florida’s offense. If this game turns into a shootout, I don’t think Temple can win. If Temple can control UCF’s offense, they have a shot. I think UCF wins a close one here.
