Cincinnati Vs. Temple 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

Bearcats look for seventh win against struggling Owls.

The Cincinnati Bearcats play to keep their remote Big East title hopes alive Saturday afternoon when they take on the Temple Owls at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field. The Bearcats are 10-point road favorites.

Cincinnati stopped a two-game losing streak with a 35-24 win over Syracuse last week, taking the Bearcats to 6-2 overall this season and 2-1 in conference play. While the team remains behind 4-0 Louisville and Rutgers, it has four Big East games left, with three against the conference's bottom three teams. Quarterback Munchie Legaux has cooled off since his 376-yard performance against Virginia Tech briefly hoisted him into the Heisman race, but the junior signalcaller has thrown for 1,716 yards and 13 touchdowns on the season, with an additional 335 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

Temple has stumbled to a 3-5 overall record in its first season back in the Big East. The Owls have suffered three straight blowout losses, including last week's 45-17 defeat at the hands of Louisville. Junior quarterback Chris Coyer has struggled, completing only 79-of-148 pass attempts for 890 yards, and the Temple passing game ranks 121st among FBS programs.

Kickoff is scheduled for noon Eastern, with the Big East Network and ESPN3 broadcasting the game.
