The Orange and the Owls are likely to put plenty of points up in Philly Friday afternoon.
The Syracuse Orange (6-5, 4-2 Big East) have a very outside chance at playing in a Bowl Championship Series game. If the Orange win at Temple Friday, if Rutgers and Louisville lose their season finales, and if Cincinnati loses one of its last two, they might back into a BCS bid. Wherever the Orange end up playing this postseason, they are likely to score plenty of points. Quarterback Ryan Nassib is averaging over 300 yards and three touchdowns a game. The Orange rush for 196 yard per game. Syracuse has scored over 35 points per game in its last five.
The Temple Owls (4-6, 2-4) can do some scoring of their own. The Owls dropped 63 on Army last Saturday. Tailback Montel Harris ran for 351 yards on 36 carries and seven touchdowns in West Point. Those numbers are both new Big East records. The Owls totaled 565 yards against the Black Knights -- 31 of those came through the air. Temple needs to score plenty, because the Owls have allowed over 500 yards to opponents in three of their past four games.
