Temple Tries Again to Finally Beat Penn State

Temple Tries Again to Finally Beat Penn State

Kevin and I hit most of the key story lines yesterday but just a few more notes in advance of this afternoon's 3:30 kickoff (ABC / ESPN 2).
-- Injury note: The Temple offensive line practiced last week without senior starters Sean Boyle and Jeff Whittingham; those two did return to practice this week. Right guard Jaimen Newman, however, is expected to miss today's game, with true freshman Kyle Friend taking his place and making his first college start.
-- Temple has not beaten Penn State since before the bombing of Pearl Harbor (Oct. 18, 1941). The Owls did manage a 7-7 tie in 1950.
-- Penn State's 29 consecutive wins against Temple would be the longest active streak in the nation for the most wins by one program over another if not for the NCAA sanctions that vacated PSU's victories dating back to 1998. Rather than 29 wins and the longest active streak in the nation, it's now just 22 and third longest in the nation.
-- Temple has never won at Beaver Stadium.
-- Temple has led at the half the last two seasons in a row.

Eagles fans, get Malcolm Jenkins that petition on Pete Morelli

Eagles fans, get Malcolm Jenkins that petition on Pete Morelli

The online petition to ban Pete Morelli from officiating Eagles games is rapidly gaining signatures.

Count Malcolm Jenkins for one.

"I would definitely sign that petition if it came across my desk," Jenkins said with a laugh to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark on Monday at the safety's Blitz, Bow Ties and Bourbon charity event.

The Eagles beat the Panthers, 28-23, last Thursday night despite a significant discrepancy in penalty yards. It was a game officiated by Morelli's crew — and you can see why that's notable by clicking right here.

"We felt like a lot of those were ticky-tack, or weren’t good calls," Jenkins said after the game. "For us, adversity is nothing new for us. We just kind of strap up and keep playing, and hunker down. We continue to play aggressively, that is the biggest thing. We don’t want that to take away our aggression, or our ability to make plays. So we just go to the next play."

What about the next signature? 

Eagles fans just need to get that petition to Jenkins' desk.
