Temple's unbeaten football team practiced in pads yesterday, probably the only time it'll do so in the 8 days between a win over Central Michigan and Saturday's game against Connecticut (1-1) in South Philly.
"We've been real banged up," said coach Al Golden, whose Owls are 2-0 for the first time since 1981. "We're just trying to get them healthy. We were only out there for about an hour-and-45 [minutes]. We'll see how we come out of it."
Offensive lineman Wayne Tribue won't play against the Huskies. But it looks "favorable" that defensive back Kevin Kroboth, linebacker Jordan Martin and running back Bernard Pierce will.
