Temple vs. Louisville 2012: Preview, TV schedule, odds and game time

Andy Lyons

The Louisville Cardinals are 8-0 and the only undefeated team in the Big East. They go for 9-0 against the Temple Owls on Saturday, trying for a more decisive win than their overtime victory over Cincinnati.

The No. 10 Louisville Cardinals take on the Temple Owls in Week 10. The Cardinals posted a 34-31 overtime win over the Cincinnati Bearcats in Week 9, enough to send them from No. 16 to No. 10 in the latest BCS rankings.

Cincinnati wasn't the first close win of the season for Louisville. The Cardinals are 8-0, and 4-0 in the Big East, but five of their wins have been by 7 or fewer points. They have trailed at some point in each of their last six games, going back to their win over the North Carolina Tar Heels that saw them outscored 27-3 in the second half.

Sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been a big part of the reason the Cardinals keep ending up on top. He threw for a career-best 416 yards against Cincinnati and has 13 touchdowns to four interceptions for the season.

The Owls are coming off a disappointing 47-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Panthers. This is the team's second year under head coach Steve Addazio, who was previously with the Florida Gators for their 2007 and 2009 BCS National Championship seasons. Addazio steered the team to a 9-4 record in 2011, but has struggled with getting consistent performances from a young team in 2012.
