Temple and Penn State are both in action with important conference games this Saturday - here's a look at the matchups for the two teams.
12 p.m., Temple vs. Pittsburgh, Big East Network/ESPN3: The Owls dropped their first Big East game last week against the still-undefeated Rutgers Scarlet Knights, but Pitt provides a less frightening conference matchup: the Panthers' only quality win on the year is a shocking upset of Virginia Tech: other than that, they've lost an FCS matchup to Youngstown State and all three of their Big East games thus far. Temple has played two other teams currently at 0-3 in conference, and won both times. Montel Harris has come on strong for the Owls, averaging at least 4 yards per carry in every game since he began regularly carrying the ball against South Florida.
5:30 p.m. Ohio State vs. Penn State, ESPN: The reinvigorated Nittany Lions play the biggest game of Bill O'Brien's tenure thus far, as the 8-0 undefeated Buckeyes come to Happy Valley. All of a sudden, Penn State looks like a world-beater, rolling off five straight since a pair of disappointing losses early. Matt McGloin has completed at least 60 percent of his passes and thrown ten touchdowns against only one pick in Penn State's five-game winning streak, most recently a 289-yard outing as the Nittany Lions stomped Iowa. Although Braxton Miller has had Ohio State's offense clicking, the Buckeyes were pushed to overtime by a lowly Purdue team last week.
