Temple vs. Pitt 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE

Looking for their first conference win, Pitt will host Temple at Heinz Field on Saturday.

The Pitt Panthers will try to pull back to an even .500 and pick up their first Big East win on Saturday as another month of college football wraps up. Temple will travel across the state for their first matchup against the Panthers since they re-joined the conference this year. It's the one season both programs will overlap, with Pitt off to the ACC next season.

Temple is 3-2 this year, and they've been competitive in their step up to the Big East. They were leading and shutting out No. 15 Rutgers at the half last week, and then the Scarlet Knights turned it on to blow them out in the second. But the Owls have already scored Big East wins against South Florida and UConn, where they impressively came back to win in overtime on the road.

While the Owls have already experienced success in the conference, and the Panthers still seek their first win, it's Pitt that is favored by a touchdown at home. The Panthers should have more talent, but Steve Addazio's rushing offense has had success upsetting opponents this season. Boston College transfer Montel Harris, a former ACC leading rusher, is one to watch and limit if Paul Chryst's team wants to pick up the win.

Kickoff is set for noon at Heinz Field, with the Big East Network carrying the game. It will be available in the East on SNY and MASN, and an online stream can be watched at ESPN3.
