Football announces kick-off times for four games

PHILADELPHIA CREAM – The American Athletic Conference has announced kickoff times for the first week of the 2022 season, along with several primetime and nationally televised contests. Among the announcements were four matchups with Temple, including the season opener against Duke.

The Owls will begin the season at Duke with a prime-time broadcast on the ACC Network of its Opening Day game on Friday, September 2 at 7:30 p.m. This game will mark the start of Stan Drayton as Temple’s head coach.

The following week, Temple returned to Lincoln Financial Field for three consecutive home games. On Saturday, September 10, the Owls will host Lafayette. Next week, the Owls will face Rutgers on Saturday, September 17. ESPN+ will broadcast both games with kick-off times yet to be determined. The Owls wrap up the month with a home game against UMass on Saturday, September 24. Broadcast information and kickoff time are yet to be determined.


After a road game against Memphis and a bye in early October, Temple will play three consecutive nationally televised games. On Thursday, October 13, they play at UCF. The match will be broadcast on ESPN with a kick off time of 7:00 p.m. The following week, the Owls play a Friday Night Contest at the Linc against Tulsa. This match will start at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN2. Temple will wrap up this series of nationally televised tilts with a fight against Navy. This match will begin on Saturday, October 29 at 3:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.


Temple’s launches and remaining networks will be announced during the season as part of the traditional 12-day selection process.


Drayton has been busy this offseason reshaping the roster. His February recruiting class saw the addition of size, length and speed from a host of incoming freshmen. Temple also enters 2022 with no less than a dozen incoming transfers with FBS experience who expect to contribute immediately.


This influx of talent, along with an aggressive style of play across all three team phases expected from Drayton’s new staff, has fans excited about a promising 2022 season.
