"They got used to seeing it," said Rhule. "But a lot of those players are gone now. We've got a younger team now and when a lot of those guys see it they are going to have to be ready for the speed of it. The speed can overwhelm you when you are seeing it for the first time.
"So we're going to have our work cut out for us," Rhule continued. "Hopefully we can find a way to slow down this extremely impressive rushing attack."
Army is without injured West Catholic standout Raymond Maples (groin), the sixth leading rusher (2,612) in school history. However, running back Terry Baggert is coming off a record-setting performance last week that saw him gain a school-record 304 yards in a 50-25 victory over Eastern Michigan.
Despite Temple's struggles this season, Army is not taking the Owls, one of eight winless FBS teams, for granted.
"I think we find ourselves playing an opponent who has struggled this year, but they are really a gifted group," Army coach Rich Ellerson said on Army's website. "I think they are finding themselves, and I think their personnel situation is similar to ours.
"They have struggled to win, but they have some confidence and play people very well," he continued. "They have some confidence in their recent history with us. It will come down to a test of wills."
Last season, Montell Harris rushed for a school-record 351 yards and seven touchdowns as Temple ended a four-game losing streak. Both teams combined to rush for 941 total yards as the Owls extended their winning streak over Army to five games.
One thing Temple would like to do this week is get off to fast start, something they did last week but weren't able to sustain in a 38-20 loss at Cincinnati. Temple led by 13-7 after one quarter but was outscored, 31-7, over the final three quarters.
"We have to sustain it for a whole game," freshman quarterback P.J. Walker said. "That has been a problem all season. We have to be aggressive and score points and take advantage of opportunities when we have them."
