Tulane Green Wave vs. Temple Owls

Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA

When: Saturday, November 16, 12:00 PM. ET.

The Temple Owls will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Tulane Green Wave on Saturday afternoon.

Green Wave Going For Second Consecutive Win

The Green Wave snapped their two-game losing streak with a win over Tulsa in their last game and will try to pick up their second consecutive win when they face the Owls, who have dominated the series in recent years.

Tulane has played well offensively this season, averaging 36.4 points per game. The team has done particularly well on the ground, picking up 261.2 rushing yards per game, which is 10th in the country. With the Owls giving up 234.2 rushing yards per game, they should be able to move the ball effectively on the ground on Saturday.

Justin McMillan leads the Green Wave with 1,703 passing yards with 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also has 488 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns for the Green Wave, while Corey Dauphine has 455 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

The Green Wave have also played well defensively, holding opponents to 25.4 points per game. They gave up 26 points in their last game and will need to play better to pick up the win.

Owls Going For Fourth Consecutive Win Over Green Wave

The Owls have dominated the Green Wave over the last three seasons, winning all three contests between the two teams. They will be trying to make it four consecutive wins over the Green Wave when they play on Saturday.

Temple has done a decent job offensively, averaging 26.4 points per game. However, they have struggled in recent weeks and haven’t scored more than 21 points in each of their last three games. The Owls do a good job moving the ball through the air, but they will meet some resistance against the Green Wave, who are holding opponents to 196.9 passing yards per game.

Anthony Russo leads the way for the Owls with 2,037 yards, 16 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Re'Mahn Davis leads the team on the ground with 655 rushing yards and five touchdowns.

The Owls have also played well defensively, holding opponents to 25.4 points per game. They played well in their last game, holding USF to seven points, after giving up 54 points per game in their previous two games and will need to keep it up if they want to beat the Green Wave on Saturday.
