Memphis clearly has the better offense, but Temple may be stronger on defense. However, the Owls have been suspect at stopping the run, giving up 162.8 yards per game. The Tigers like to air it out, but still have a formidable rushing attack. The Memphis defense should be excited here as well, as Walker has been a bit of a turnover machine. If Memphis can slow down Temple’s run game, they can force Walker into tough situations, which should lead to turnovers. Memphis can capitalize with a short field and then make an easy cover. My pick goes with Memphis
