It’s all eyes on Philadelphia this weekend, including a visit from ESPN “College GameDay,” for Temple’s big showdown against the legendary Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
To add to the drama, the game has been selected as ABC’s Saturday Night Football Game and will kickoff at 8 p.m.
It is the first time that an American Athletic Conference team has been selected as ABC’s Saturday Football Game and the first primetime full national telecast for the conference. It is also the first time Temple Football will be televised nationally by the network.
“This is tremendous exposure for our Temple Football program and it is well-deserved recognition for the job Matt Rhule has done with this team,” Temple University Director of Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft said. “We look forward to having the rest of the country see Temple Football play against an elite program like Notre Dame on a national stage.”
