Penn State hosts the Temple Owls at Beaver Stadium on Saturday.
The Penn State Nittany Lions will look to build on their blowout victory over Navy when they welcome the Temple Owls into Beaver Stadium on Saturday.
Allen Robinson, a Biletnikoff Award candidate as college football's top receiver, led the Nittany Lions over Navy with five catches for 136 yards and three touchdowns. He may continue putting up big numbers, as long as the guys around him keep improving.
Temple is 1-1 on the season, with a victory over Villanova and a loss to Maryland. The Owls' offense is led by quarterback Chris Coyer, who has for 239 yards and a touchdown while running for 133 and a score.
The Owls were off last week, and had extra time to prepare for Penn State. They probably need the extra preparation, as the Nittany Lions lead the all-time series between the two schools, 37-3-1.
Game time, TV channel: 3:30p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN2
Point spread: Penn State favored by 7.
