Temple junior RB Ryquell Armstead rushed for 151 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in the school's 31-29 loss on Saturday to Army.

Armstead's 20-yard score was really nice. he pressed the hole then backpedaled a few yards before bouncing it outside and exploding upfield for a score. This was clearly Armstead's best performance of the season.
Oct 21 - 4:35 PM

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi (lower extremity) is not playing in Saturday's game against Army.

Marchi sustained the injury during the practice week and was sporting a boot on Saturday. While he was able to take part in pre-game warmups, redshirt freshman Frank Nutile ultimately drew the start in his place against the Black Knights.
Oct 21 - 2:10 PM

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi suffered a lower extremity injury during practice this week.

The Owls are still expecting that Marchi will be able to play against Army on Saturday, but his status is worth monitoring given that he has had only a few days to rest the injury concern. Redshirt junior Frank Nutile would see playing time on Saturday if Marchi is limited or ruled out.
Oct 20 - 6:02 PM

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi completed 33 of 54 attempts for 356 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the school's 28-24 loss to UConn.

This means Marchi has gone over 300 passing yards in back to back games, however, last week's was in a win over ECU. He's hitting his stride at just the right time.
Oct 14 - 3:40 PM

Temple redshirt junior TE Chris Myarick (unspecified) is questionable for Saturday's game against Connecticut.

Myarick didn’t play against ECU after he "got banged up in pregame warm-ups," according to HC Geoff Collins.
Oct 14 - 11:56 AM

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi completed 3-of-13 passes for 32 yards and three interceptions in a 43-7 loss to USF.

If you are a big fan of watching the passing game, this game wasn't for you. The two teams combined for 185 yards passing on 15-of-35 passing. As mediocre as USF QB Quinton Flowers was, he was Tom Brady compared to Marchi. He had zero accuracy on throws short, long or inbetween, and he made three costly turnovers that kept the Owls from ever truly being in the game. The only good news for Marchi and his chance for keeping the job was that backup Frank Nutile went 4-for-12 with a pick himself. USF is one of the better defenses Marchi will face, but through three games, things don't looke good for the sophomore signal-caller.
Sep 21 - 11:10 PM

Temple junior RB Ryquell Armstead rushed for 91 yards on 17 carries in Friday's 29-21 win over UMass.

Over half of Armstead's yardage came on a 56-yard gallop. He averaged 5.4 YPC for the game as a whole. This was the 5-foot-11, 205-pounder's strongest overall showing this season. Indeed, it more than doubled his statistical output in the first two games of the campaign combined. He's up to 177 yards rushing for the year -- no touchdowns as of yet. This after he scored 14 times last season.
Sep 15 - 11:17 PM

Temple sophomore WR Isaiah Wright caught four passes for 69 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 29-21 win over UMass.

Wright had perhaps the play of the game, and it came in a critical spot for the Owls. With 3:48 remaining in the contest and Temple nursing a 22-16 lead, QB Logan Marchi fired off a 13-yard pass toward the right corner of the end zone. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Wright was covered relatively well, but the pass hit him in stride and he managed to one-hand it in -- without any sort of flash, just a clutch, workman-like one-handed grab -- for the touchdown. UMass would notch a touchdown of their own after the subsequent kickoff, but Wright's big score was enough to keep the game just out of reach when all was said and done. Overall, the sophomore wideout is now up to a 9-180-1 receiving line across three games played.
Sep 15 - 11:09 PM

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi completed 22-of-37 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns in Friday's 29-21 win over UMass.

Marchi wasn't exactly lighting the field on fire -- he averaged 6.7 YPA -- but he connected on a pair of touchdown passes in the final minute of the first half to boost the Owls from a 7-3 deficit to a 16-7 halftime advantage (the extra point on the second score was missed). Temple would not trail again after those two scores. The 6-foot, 205-pound Marchi has been held under 250 yards passing in two of three games this season, but does own a 5/0 TD/INT ratio on the year. Upcoming on the docket, the redshirt sophomore will try to help lead the Owls to an upset over USF next Thursday.
Sep 15 - 11:00 PM

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi completed 20-of-34 passes for 274 yards in a 16-13 victory over Villanova on Saturday.

That's not the completion percentage you want, but Marchi was effective enough, and he was able to connect on a few big plays to keep the offense moving. The best news is that he has yet to turn the ball over in his two games, which is always a plus. It's just a matter of completing more passes at this point.
Sep 9 - 8:22 PM

Temple redshirt junior WR Ventell Bryant (hamstring) caught seven passes for 79 yards in a 16-13 victory over Villanova on Saturday.

Bryant (6'3/180) was a game-time decision, and he looked healthy against the Wildcats. He didn't find the end zone, but he helped keep the offense on schedule enough for the victory. He had a 29-yard connection with Owls' QB Logan Marchi. He'll get a slightly stiffer test next weekend when Temple takes on UMass.
Sep 9 - 8:17 PM

Temple redshirt junior WR Ventell Bryant (hamstring) will play in Saturday's game against Villanova.

This was the expectation early in the week and Bryant made it through practice without any sort of a setback on the health front. He sat out the team's season-opener against Notre Dame due to a hamstring injury suffered in preseason camp. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound redshirt junior logged a 54-895-4 receiving line last season.
Sep 9 - 3:13 PM

Temple redshirt junior WR Ventell Bryant (hamstring) is expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against Villanova.

Bryant injured his hamstring in preseason camp, but was close to playing in this past weekend's loss to Notre Dame and looks to be ready to roll for the Owls' showdown with the Wildcats. Bryant (6'3/180) caught 54 passes for 895 yards and four touchdowns last season.
Sep 8 - 9:11 PM

Temple junior RB Ryquell Armstrong rushed for 67 yards on 19 carries in Saturday's 49-16 loss to Notre Dame.

Armstead is taking over as full-time starter with Jahad Thomas no longer on the team. His 2017 debut proved rather uneventful, though, as he averaged just 3.52 YPC on Saturday while posting a long run of 17 yards. Better times should be a-coming for the 5-foot-11, 205-pounder, who rushed for 919 yards (5.9 YPC) and 14 touchdowns while splitting carries with Thomas a year ago.
Sep 2 - 8:20 PM

Temple redshirt junior WR Ventell Bryant (hamstring) is not playing in Saturday's opener against Notre Dame.

Temple was hopeful that Bryant would be able to give it a go, but they'll rest up Bryant for this one. He has been fighting through a hamstring injury suffered in preseason camp. Keith Kirkwood and Adonis Jennings are two candidates to see increased work in his absence against the Irish.
