Temple time: No. 21 Owls take big stage against No. 8 Irish

Rarely in college football can it be said with a high degree of certainty that a school is playing the biggest football game in program history.

This is one of those times.

No. 21 Temple hosts No. 8 Notre Dame on Saturday night in the first game the Owls have ever played featuring two ranked teams.

Temple is also 7-0 for the first time in school history. And the ultimate stamp of authenticity: ESPN’s “College GameDay” is setting up shop in Philadelphia this weekend for Temple.

Temple! A program that was an FBS outpost for decades. Temple football was so bad at one point it was essentially kicked out of the Big East. Now, Temple is playing the game of the week on Halloween Night at a sold-out Lincoln Financial Field, the home of the Eagles.

Notre Dame (6-1) is right at home on the big stage.

You can watch the game on ABC 57 starting at 8 p.m. EDT.
