Penn State takes on Temple in a Big Ten-Big East showdown at Beaver Stadium.

The Temple Owls will once again test their running game prowess against the Penn State Nittany LIons on Saturday, as the Big East and Big Ten squads show down at Beaver Stadium.

Last season, the Nittany Lions were able to keep the Temple running game in check, as the Owls ran for just 74 yards in a 14-10 loss. This season, Temple is led by a duo of running backs in senior Matt Brown and junior Chris Coyer. Both were especially key in the Owls' season-opening victory over Villanova.

Penn State comes into the all-Pennsylvania showdown fresh from their first victory of the season, as the Nittany Lions topped the Navy Midshipmen in Week 3, 34-7. Quarterback Matt McGloin threw for four touchdowns against the Midshipmen and has thrown for eight touchdowns against just one interception thus far in 2012.

Game time, TV channel: 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN2

Point spread: Penn State is favored over Temple by eight points after opening as a nine-point favorite.
