Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi transferred to East Tennessee State.

Marchi (6'0/205) began the 2017 season as Temple's starting quarterback, but seven games into the campaign, he was replaced by Frank Nutile. Nutile proceeded to take the job and run it out to a 4-2 record for the remainder of the campaign. For the year, Marchi passed for 1,658 yards with a 9/8 TD/INT ratio. As he's dropping down to the FCS with East Tennessee State, he'll be eligible to play immediately in 2018.
Jan 9 - 5:06 PM

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi will transfer from the school.

Marchi was the starting quarterback for the Owls for the first seven games, but lost his job to Frank Nutile, who lead them to a 4-2 record and bowl victory. He also told the Philadelphia Inquirer that it's likely he'll transfer to the FCS level, as that will allow him to not have to sit out a season. He finished 2017 with 1,658 passing yards and a 9-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

Temple sophomore WR Isaiah Wright caught five passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 28-3 win over FIU in the Gasparilla Bowl on Thursday.

Wright also had two carries for six yards. It was a relatively quiet game for the sophomore wideout until the fourth quarter, when the 6-foot-2, 214-pound athlete showed his speed on a 45-yard touchdown to put the game out of the way at 21-3. Wright is a potential breakout candidate; an athletic, big wideout who can make tacklers miss. He and the Owls have a real chance of doing some damage in the AAC come 2018.

Temple senior WR Keith Kirkwood snagged six passes for 96 yards in a 28-3 victory over FIU in the Gasparilla Bowl on Thursday.

Kirkwood didn't score, but he did help the Owls move the chains on several occasions, and set up two of the Owls scores with big catches. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound wideout was one of the few consistent performers for the Owls this season, scoring seven touchdowns and consistently hauling in three-to-five passes for a passing game that was ugly until Frank Nutile took over at quarterback. Because of his size, he could see some looks as a late-round prospect in the NFL Draft.

Temple redshirt RB David Hood rushed for 76 yards and a score on 14 carries in a 28-3 victory over FIU on Thursday in the Gasparilla Bowl.

Hood (5'9/190) was mostly held in check in the first half, but came to life over the final 30 minutes. His biggest play was a 29-yard rush with the Owls inside their own 10, and he also rushed for a one-yard plunge late in the third quarter. Hood came on strong over the final month of the season, rushing for at least 75 yards in the Owls last four games and scoring three touchdowns in that time frame. He should see more touches to start the year in 2018, and could be a potential All-AAC performer if he continues to develop.

Temple redshirt junior QB Frank Nutile threw for 259 yards and a score while rushing for another touchdown in a 28-3 victory over FIU in the Gasparilla Bowl on Thursday.

Nutile started off slow, but the Owls found their footing in the second half, thanks in large part to Nutile. He opened the scoring with a four-yard rushing score in the second quarter to make it 7-0 Owls. A quarter later, he found Isaiah Wright for a 45-yard score that put the game away for Temple at 21-3. Temple got off to a terrible start in 2017, but after installing Nutile as the starting signal-caller, the Owls looked much more formidable. He and most of the Temple offense will be back for 2018, and if he plays like he did down the stretch, they have a chance to compete for the American Athletic Championship.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Temple junior RB Ryquell Armstead is considering declaring for the NFL Draft.

Pauline's surprised by this one, as Armstead has been mostly unimpressive this season. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound junior has rushed for just 553 yards (3.9 YPC) and three touchdowns across 12 games, this after posting an encouraging 919 yards and 14 touchdowns a year ago. He'll likely be a fringe-draftable prospect should he declare in the coming days.

Temple redshirt junior QB Frank Nutile threw for 262 yards and three scores on 20-of-28 passing in Saturday's 44-23 victory over Tulsa.

With a couple of exceptions, Nutile has played well for the Owls, and made their passing game much more formidable. The junior signal-caller bounced back from his four-interception game against UCF the previous week with a game that featured no turnovers, and the aforementioned three scores. With the win, the Owls qualify for a bowl game.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 07:29:00 PM

Temple redshirt senior WR Adonis Jennings finished with two grabs for 88 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's blowout loss against UCF.

Jennings was mostly invisible until the fourth quarter when he erupted for a 74-yard touchdown, the highlight of the afternoon in an otherwise slow day offensively for the Owls. The senior has 12 touchdowns in his career, but he has really come alive with four touchdowns over his past four games. He will try to help Temple become bowl eligible with a win at Tulsa next Saturday.

Temple junior RB Ryquell Armstead (undisclosed) is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against UCF.

Armstead suffered an undisclosed injury early in last week’s 35-24 win at Cincinnati and didn’t return. Hood ran for a career-high 108 yards in his absence and will get the start if Armstrong can't go.

Temple junior RB Ryquell Armstead rushed for 28 yards on only four carries in Friday's 35-24 win over Cincinnati.

The Owls have yet to pass along word as to an injury concern, but Armstead was spotted on the bench icing his chest and/or abdomen during the contest. We'll keep you updated as information becomes available. Armstead entered action on Friday having rushed for 454 yards (3.8 YPC) and three touchdowns through nine games.

Temple redshirt junior RB David Hood rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in Friday's 35-24 win over Cincinnati.

Hood (5'9/190) scored on a one-yard run midway through the first quarter. His long run on the evening went for 27 yards. This was the redshirt junior's second 100-yard showing of the season. Overall, he's put up 397 yards and three touchdowns in 10 contests this year.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 10:51:00 PM

Temple redshirt junior QB Frank Nutile completed 19-of-30 passes for 224 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing for 28 yards and an additional score in Friday's 35-24 win over Cincinnati.

Nutile wasn't exactly lighting things up as either a passer or a runner, but he turned in a workman-like effort in what was a relatively drama-free win by the Owls. In three starts this season, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound redshirt junior now owns a 6/1 TD/INT ratio. Even if regular starter Logan Marchi is able to return from an ankle injury before the end of the campaign, we wouldn't be surprised if Nutile's done enough to hang onto the job for the short remainder. Temple (5-5) closes out the season with games against UCF and Tulsa. If they can at least earn a split in those contests, they'll be bowling in HC Geoff Collins' first year at the helm.

Temple redshirt junior QB Frank Nutile is starting against Cincinnati on Friday.

This will be Nutile's third consecutive start filling in for the injured Logan Marchi (ankle). We'll see if he can carry over his success from last week, when he dropped 289 yards and a quartet of touchdowns in a win over Navy.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 07:04:00 PM

Temple redshirt senior WR Adonis Jennings caught five passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-26 victory over Navy.

This game wasn't quite as close as the score indicates, as Temple had a three-score lead until the middle of the fourth quarter. Jennings (6'3/195) was a a key reason for that, finding openings in the struggling Navy secondary. He's now scored three touchdowns in his last two games, and four in the last four. Jennings will look to stay hot for the Owls next week against Cincinnati.
