Temple Owls vs. Cincinnati Bearcats Live Blog: Instant Reactions and Analysis
The winless Temple Owls stay winless after traveling to Nippert Stadium. After a hot start, where they actually led the Cincinnati Bearcats for a short period of time in the first half, the young Temple Owls showed their inexperience in the second half.
The Cincinnati Bearcats led by sixth year quarterback Brendon Kay got their first AAC win, beating the Owls 38-20.
The Owls showed some promise and potential, and their aggressive play calling made for some entertaining football, but were unable to hold the Cats on their home field.
The Bearcat win gives them a much needed pick me up, after a loss to then winless Georgia State and loss of teammate Ben Flick.
The Temple Owls will look to build on the potential of their young squad, led by true freshman quarterback PJ Walker and sophomore linebacker Tyler Matakevich.
After a hot start, the young PJ Walker and the rest of the young Temple squad couldn't keep up with a more experienced Brendan Kay and his Cincinnati squad. The Owls should some promise with their young talent and aggressive play calling, but it just wasn't enough to beat the solid Kay.
Cincinnati's offense was definitely the highlight for the Bearcats. PJ Walker and the rest of the Temple offense exposed some of Cincy's weaknesses on defense, however.
Temple walks away still winless, but with a little bit of hope for the future, while Cincinnati walks away with a win surely dedicated to their fallen teammate.
All in all, it was a lot better game than I expected.

BIG fumble by PJ Walker. Might be Temple's savior this season, but still makes freshman mistakes.— Oracle Sports (@OracleSports1) October 12, 2013
Young PJ Walker fumbles the ball. Recovered by Cincinnati. He's young, for now it's forgivable. In a few years, unforgivable.
