Temple Gets Taken by the Green Wave

It was a scary Halloween for the Owls. Temple gets taken by the Tulane Green Wave. The Temple Owls (1-3) ventured to Yulman Stadium to battle the Tulane Green Wave  (3-4) on Saturday afternoon. Temple found itself shorthanded with 9 starters sidelined for various reasons which included Quarterback, Anthony Russo.

The first quarter closed with the only markers being from Temple place kicker, Rory Bell, from 22 yards. That would be last hurrah for the Owls who were deluged with a 38 point Tulane onslaught.

The Wave QB, Michael Pratt was nothing but steady and put up a 12-of-21 game for 205 yards and two touchdowns. He took a third touchdown in with a run. The scores went to Deuce Watts who threw in 114 yards of five receptions.

For Temple, replacement QB, Trad Beatty filled in somewhat nicely with a 11 for 18 day for 122 yards but, threw a pick.

Dis and Dat

The contest marked the first time Tulane got the best of Temple since the 1934 Sugar Bowl. Tulane posted 30+ points for the fifth time this season.
