Temple vs Ohio: MAC East Leaders To Do Battle in a Tuesday Night Showdown

Daniel MalkinContributor INovember 17, 2010

There are countless articles written everyday about the top teams and conferences in the country. It is about time people start respecting the Mid American League Conference and giving them the credit they deserve.

Tonight Ohio will travel to Philadelphia to take on Temple. The Owls are 8-2 and the Bobcats are 7-3. Both of these teams are 5-1 and are in a three way tie for the Eastern division crown with Miami of Ohio.

Ohio has been a strong team all year, they are quick and play very solid defense. They were really able to show how fast they were on the offensive side of the ball during their domination of Miami of Ohio.

When it comes to Temple, I believe they are the best team in the division. They were a good team last year and are an even better squad in 2010.

During their wins against UConn, Central Michigan and Army they showed how dangerous they can be running the ball. With Bernard Pierce and Matt Brown it is hard for any defensive front to contain them.

Temple even gave the Nittany Lions a run for their money in Happy Valley back in September. Their loss to Northern Illinois was an unfortunate won and proved that the Huskies are the best team in the conference. It would be interesting to see both advance to the championship and play each other once again.

However, before either team can play for the titles they will have to win tonight and then win the final game of the season. For the Owls that will be difficult as they will travel to Ohio to play the RedHawks.

With that said, I believe Temple is a very well coached team and is strong enough running the ball and defending the pass to win tonight's game.

It should be a very close affair in Philly. All football fans should enjoy a Tuesday night game, which is a real treat and sit back and enjoy what the Mid American League conference has to offer.
