Temple can clinch an outright Atlantic 10 regular season championship with a win Saturday against Fordham.

The Temple Owls conclude their regular season on the road at Fordham, with a chance to capture an outright Atlantic 10 Conference regular season championship for the first time since 1989-90.

Temple has already clinched at least a share of the regular season title, and can garner sole possession of the championship with a win Saturday or a Saint Louis loss.

With 12 victories in their last 13 outings, the Owls have all but sealed an NCAA tournament berth regardless of what happens in the Atlantic 10 conference tournament. Temple is a No. 4 seed in SB Nation's latest edition of Bracketology.

Fordham has lost seven of eight to fall to 3-12 in the Atlantic 10. The Rams were the first team eliminated from contention for the Atlantic 10 championship after being bulldozed by Rhode Island 78-58 on Wednesday.
