On Saturday, Boston College hits the road again, this time to face off with the Temple Owls in Philadelphia. The feel of this game took a drastic right turn with the news of quarterback Phil Jurkovec's injury dominating the news cycle. Now it's Dennis Grosel's turn to run the offense, something head coach Jeff Hafley feels extremely confident that he can do at a high level.
Temple on the other hand has had a very uneven start to their season. They were pounded by Rutgers in the season opener 61-14, but rebounded against Akron 45-24. Their starting quarterback situation is also something worth watching. Will Rod Cary go with Georgia transfer D'wan Mathis or true freshman Justin Lynch?
