Temple has won five in row over East Carolina and is on a 6-0 ATS run. The Owls are 18-3 ATS when facing conference revenge and are 6-1 ATS as a road favorite of six or more points. On the flip side, ECU is just the opposite of their counterparts on Thursday/Friday contests at an undesirable 1-11 ATS. The same goes for playing into conference revenge at 3-9 ATS, while the Pirates are also 1-7 ATS as a home underdog of six or more points. Feel free to draw your own conclusion. We’ve drawn ours.
Inside The Stats

In addition, there were 5 more teams in the NFL that did the same thing, with the Eagles losing the stats by 155 yards to the Packers. And surprisingly Air Force, Miami Florida, Minnesota, Temple, UAB and Utah State lead a brigade of under-the-radar college teams that are perfect in the stats in games against FBS foes this campaign.
