There aren't many records of games and teams from that era of Temple football. Over the years, the team grew into something of a powerhouse. By the 1930s, famed coach Pop Warner was leading the Temple program. Temple's program grew steadily and played well through the 1970s. Many Owls players went on to be drafted by NFL teams, including Nick Mike-Mayer, Joe Klecko and Steve Watson. By the late 1980s, trouble was brewing. Temple's winning record in 1990 would be their last for over a decade. Since the early 2000s, Temple has been rebuilding successfully. The Owls won their division in 2009, 2015 and 2016. Local fans and alumni are grateful to have a motivated, contending team on their hands again. StubHub is your source for Temple Owls tickets.
