Temple Football Team Has Disastrous Sequence, Punts On 4th-And-Goal

Once you get yourself into a “goal-to-go” situation, you expect to get at least three points. After a 17-yard completion got the Temple Owls to the seven yard line, the home team figured hey’d take the lead.
They didn’t.
Following a disastrous sequence of plays, they managed to put themselves out of field goal range.
From inside the 10, the team lost lost five yards on a run on first down, then failed to complete a pass on second down. Third down is when things got really ugly. Now at the 12-yard line, the Owls quarterback was sacked for a loss of 24-yards, effectively putting the Owls out of field goal range.
Their only option was to punt the ball away, which was downed at the five-yard line.


The Owls offense has been anemic this season despite their 2-2 record. Both of their losses have been blowouts at the hands of Notre Dame and USF, while hile their wins have been single-score nail bitters against Villanova and UMass.
Nobody expects the Owls to light the FBS on fire or be ranked in the AP Top 25 at any point during the season, but being forced to punt on a set of downs that started on the seven yard lines is a new low.
Through the first half of their game against Houston, they trail 13-0.
