Temple Owls College Football Preview 2021: Offense

– Temple was out of luck. It was hard to get the season going, it was hard to find consistency, it never seemed to get flow, and the offense wasn’t able to do much right.

It finished tenth in the conference averaging just 348 yards and 20 points per game, the running game wasn’t there, the passing game was pathetically inefficient and …

– The passport protection was great. It was one of the few strong areas of attack – the owls allowed 12 sacks and a league low of 1.7 per game. This isn’t something that can be blown away – it’s a good base for the rest of the offense to work around. Four starters are expected back with only the new Colorado State Ram Vincent Picozzi on the right.

Now the backs have to get more production without running the rusher Re’Man Davis. He went to Vanderbilt, but the Owls bring with them two interesting talents in Iverson Clement from Florida and Ra’Von Bonner from Illinois. They’re both 200-pounders who can grind, and Tayvon Ruley is back after finishing second behind Davis – by just two yards – with 306 yards and a score.

– It was getting really interesting with the quarterback. Six Owls threw at least two passes last year, but now lead passer-by Anthony Russo goes to Michigan, Trad Beatty goes to Georgia Tech, and D’Wan Mathis is coming.

The story goes on

The 6-6, 205 pounder was the starter for a cup of coffee in Georgia last year, and now the former star recruit combines with former Iowa State Big Re-al Mitchell to try and get the passing game going.

The boys are there in the reception corps. This might not be a strong attack to show off his skills, but Jadan Blue is one of the better recipients of the AAC and he’s not alone back with four of the top five targets. That includes tight end David Martin-Robinson, who caught 11 passes for 147 yards.

Temple Owls College Football Preview 2021: Defense

– The defense had problems. The offense didn’t help, but the D couldn’t leave the field easily enough, allowing 37 points and 433 yards per game. There’s an interesting mix of talent coming back, but it’s going to take a lot of work to get production going because …

– The defensive front is being revised. Manny Walker was one of the team’s better pass rushers at seven sacks, but top sack guy Arnold Ebiketie went to Penn State. The series also loses defensive tackles to Ifeanyi Maijeh (Rutgers), Khris Banks (Boston College) and Daniel Armstrong (graduate).

300-pound senior Kevin Robertson is back inside after serving in a backup role, and the line is getting help from the transfer portal with DE Will Rodgers, Washington State and DT Lancine Turay, North Carolina on the verge of to push for jobs.

– The linebacking corps is fine when the top guys are back. Lead tackler William Kwenkeu is back in the middle after 49 stops, with size, athleticism and options on the outside.

The runner-up took the team’s two or three picks and it will be a while before the corners are whipped into shape. Linwood Crump and Christian Braswell went to Colorado State and Rutgers, respectively, but Northwestern’s Cameron Ruiz and UConn’s Keyshawn Paul play a role. Collateral Amir Tyler and Jalen Ware are veterans who can strike.

Temple Owls College Football Preview 2021: Top Players

Best Temple Owl Offensive Player

WR Jadan Blue, Jr.
The hope is that one of the quarterbacks will be the star of the show, but no matter who it is, the receiving corps will be there to make it work. The 6-0, 185-pound Blue led the team with 41 catches for 371 yards and five scores, but he has the ability to make more big games.

Two years ago he received All-AAC awards with 95 catches for nearly 1,100 yards and four scores.

2. OT Isaac Moore, Jr.
3. QB D’Wan Mathis, RFr.
4. RB Tayvon Ruley, Sr.
5th floor Adam Klein, Jr.

Best defensive player of the temple owls

S. Amir Tyler, Sr.
One of the better defenders of the past two years, he’s a consistent veteran for a team that needs as many as they can get. He’s a pretty big 205 pound safety who has made 85 tackles with nine abandoned passes and three fumble recoveries over the past two seasons.

He missed the regular season final against East Carolina but still finished third on the team. He will be in the All-Star mix as one of the team’s lead tacklers.

2. DE Manny Walker, Sr.
3. LB William Kwenkeu, Sr.
4. LB George Reid, Jr.
5. DE Will Rodgers, Sr.

Top transfer for arriving temple owls

QB D’Wan Mathis, RFr.
He’s a great story that could have a happy ending with the owls.

A great recruit for Georgia, the 6-6, 205-pounder survived emergency brain surgery, recovered, and kicked off the Dawgs last year. He fought in defeating Arkansas, was replaced and is now in Philadelphia.

The talent and mobility are there, but he may need time to grow into the job. There could still be a Temple quarterback rotation – Re-al Mitchell will still be a factor in the race – but the upside is that he’s special.

Temple Owls College Football Preview 2021: Key to the Season

Temple Owls Greatest Key: Insult

Crank up the passing game. Without due respect, if you had trouble throwing the ball against East Carolina and UCF last season, you had a problem.

Temple’s offense had many problems.

The pass attack worked early on but got worse and worse and then fell off the map. The Owl O, who threw four touchdown passes against USF, and Memphis only managed two in their last four games, none in three of those four, and couldn’t get on the field.

This is mainly due to the fact that starter Anthony Russo was finished after the first three games and Temple could not find the right solution. If Mitchell can settle in or D’Wan Mathis can be the answer, the recipients are there to make everything work.

Temple Owls Greatest Key: Defense

Passport defense has to be better. It did well to keep most teams from getting into a groove – it allowed the teams to only hit 57% of their passes – but there were way too many big plays on.

The D came up with just three picks, struggled with third downstops, and after the tough year and combined with 2019, he hasn’t found more than one interception in any game in the Rod Carey era.

The Owl Defense gave up ten yards per throw at UCF two seasons ago. That was the only time it allowed more than 8.5 yards per pass, and during the year it gave up an average of 6.3 meters per pass.

2020? The D gave up 9.2 yards per pass and allowed over 8.3 yards per throw in every game, except when defeating USF.

Tulane, SMU and UCF together hit over ten yards per throw, and only Navy – the run-only team only threw two passes – failed to throw two or more touchdown passes.

Temple Owls key player for a successful season

DT Kevin Robertson, Sr.
And / or the former North Carolina displaces Lancine Turay and Xach Gill and / or a number of newbies who must rise in the midst of the Owl Defense.

The offense is experienced and gets better – the passing game gets stronger. The defensive back seven returns enough veterans to be good, and the endings are good enough.

Now Temple must rebuild the front wall after losing the top tackles to the transfer portal or the deal, and it will be a fight.

At 6-2 and 300 pounds, the former JUCO transfer is the size the owls need, he’s got a few games under his belt, and now he – and a few other parts – has to be factors.

Temple Owl’s key game for the 2021 season

Memphis, October 2nd
Temple will be 2-2 to start the season. It will almost certainly lose to Rutgers and Boston College, and beat Akron and Wagner. If there’s a problem with one of the Power Fivers, great.

And then the American Athletic Conference season begins with a bang. Beat Memphis at home or it will be a tough run with a trip to Cincinnati that follows, kicking off a series of three street games in four dates.

The owls and tigers are 2-2 in the last four encounters.

Temple Owls College Football Preview 2021: What’s to Happen Season Forecast

It will be drowned in the fog of 2020 that Temple Football is better than 1-6.

Chopped off last year.

Everyone had to get through the global pandemic and everyone had problems. It’s not that Temple wasn’t able to handle them, but it couldn’t get its season off the ground – Navy played for a month before getting the Owls in their opener – and it showed.

Again, with all the attention paid to Cincinnati, UCF, and the potential rise of Houston and others this year, it will be forgotten, but Temple has been a factor in the AAC for some time.

The program, which could not do anything right for a long, long time, had five winning seasons in a row before 2020 and no defeat campaign since 2014.

Bet the total amount of Temple Owls winnings for the regular season at … 6

That’s not to say the owls will break through and take over the conference, but it has enough in its pocket to be the thorn in its side team that messes things up for others with huge dreams.

If the quarterback situation can get better and more evenly – there should be an improvement – and if the defensive can reload quickly, Temple can beat Akron and Wagner in the non-conference game and take at least four wins in the AAC season.

And it shouldn’t be a shock.

Temple is good, head coach Rod Carey is good and the program will get things back on track.
