Temple and Houston kick off the first game in American Athletic Conference history at Noon.
As you can see above, the Lincoln Financial Field end zones have been painted cherry and white for the occasion. "Temple" on the one side, and "Owls" on the other.
In jersey-related news, Temple is going to be wearing a different uniform combination each week this year. A Temple spokesperson said earlier this week the team would be donning a throwback look as they honor head coach Wayne Hardin. They've gone cherry on cherry on cherry for the home opener, with "Temple" spelled out on the helmet, rather than the "][".
Also included are shots of head coach Matt Rhule running around the field before the game. One of them is him yelling at me to take a good one.
