In the final road trip of the regular season, Cincinnati will travel to Philadelphia for a battle with Temple on Saturday at 4:00 PM. The game will be available to watch on ESPNU, fuboTV and other platforms.
After eliminating East Carolina from conference championship contention last week, the Bearcats have a chance to clinch a spot in the AAC title game with victories over Temple and Tulane this month.
Temple enters with a 3-7 record but is playing better recently behind a high-powered passing offense. In the three most recent games, the Owls are putting up 36.7 points and 366.0 passing yards per game.
A few players to keep an eye on include freshman quarterback EJ Warner, senior receiver Jose Barbon and sophomore linebacker Jordan Magee. Warner has 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Even though Temple will fall short of bowl eligibility, an upset over the Bearcats would be a major win as Cincinnati attempts to stay in the race for a third consecutive AAC championship.
Luke Fickell’s team is expected to take down Temple and set up a clash against Tulane with a berth in the championship game at stake. Fickell looked ahead to the must-win matchups per Cincinnati Athletics.
"“We know that our whole objective is to play for a championship and you know that you’re in a position where it’s all or nothing. I’m not saying that every game isn’t like that but you try to put more of an emphasis on what you need to do. You want to make sure these guys understand that we have trained to be in a position where it really matters in November.”"
