The No. 22 Temple Owls (7–1) will travel to Texas to face the SMU Mustangs (1–7) on Friday at Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

The Owls are coming off a 24–20 loss to Notre Dame last week. They will look to running back Jahad Thomas to lead the way against SMU, as he is just 96 yards short of becoming Temple’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 2012. Thomas is averaging 113 yards per game and has 13 touchdowns this season.

Last week, SMU lost to Tulsa, 40–31. Against Temple, the Mustangs will look to quarterback Matt Davis, who has 1,779 yards passing and 14 touchdowns this season, while also serving as the team’s top rusher with 450 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.
