The Temple Owls, who haven't played in too many important football games in recent years, should be preparing for the one today at Army as if it were a bowl game. The season is less than a month old, but this is the last time the Owls will be able to say that they have as much talent as their opponent, the last game when a victory wouldn't be a huge upset. Temple needs a strong performance to relieve the mass depression that hit the Owls camp after last week's 31-14 loss to East Carolina.

WEST POINT, N.Y. - Army's Raymond Maples says he now sees life differently. Growing up near 52d Street and Baltimore Avenue, Maples said he never really experienced life outside of Philadelphia. "Being here opened my eyes up to different cultures and different experiences," the junior running back said of life at West Point. "And I just have a greater appreciation for the smaller things in life. " A systems engineering management major, Maples will be a second lieutenant in the Army when he graduates.

New York's latest tourism commercial hypes what the state calls "a fall football game at West Point. " But the $750,000 television blitz doesn't show the U.S. Military Academy's stadium at all. What it really shows, New York officials now admit, is a fall football game at Veterans Stadium. The Army-Navy game, to be exact. "There was no deception involved here, either implied or inferred," Steven Morello, a senior deputy commissioner of the New York Commerce Department, said yesterday.

When a tipped pass from Temple quarterback Adam DiMichele was intercepted on his team's first possession against Army on Friday, it could have been the kind of bad break that past Owls' teams never could overcome. On this day at Michie Stadium, though, the play became just a footnote in the Owls' 35-7 victory. Temple recovered by forcing three first-half turnovers that helped it score two touchdowns, and the Black Knights were out of it by halftime in the opener for both teams.

Army quarterback Trent Steelman was asked Tuesday what he remembers the most about his team's 27-13 loss to Temple last season at Lincoln Financial Field. "Their defense was probably the hardest-hitting we saw all year," said the 6-foot, 185-pound sophomore from Bowling Green, Ky. "They were big, physical and athletic. " On Saturday, Steelman and his teammates will get to test their toughness against the Owls again. Both teams are 3-1 going into their battle on homecoming at Army's 40,000-seat Michie Stadium.

Temple football coach Al Golden doesn't like to divulge much about injuries. Neither does he use them as a crutch. He knows his team had a chance to finally beat Penn State (3-1) on Saturday, even though it had to play without tailback Bernard Pierce for the final quarter-and-a-half. When Pierce went out with an injury to his right ankle, the Owls led 13-9. They would lose, 22-13. "We had a lot of guys who went in with a belief," Golden said yesterday, on the weekly Mid-American Conference call.

Michie Stadium was empty. A bright morning sun bejeweled the snow encircling the football field, and a flag, snapping in the breeze high atop vacant grandstands, flew at half-staff. That lowered flag honored Glenn Davis, who, withered by disease, had walked into that stadium for a last time in October. Propped on the arm of the academy's superintendent that day, he shuffled across the same ground where decades before he had run with uncommon speed. Yesterday, in weather as breathtaking as so many of the runs that earned him a Heisman Trophy and helped win Army its only three national titles in the 1940s, Davis made a final return to West Point.

The Temple Owls didn't just win a football game yesterday. They were entertaining and inventive and dramatic. They gave fans their money's worth. It was an anything-goes kind of game. The most important Owls pass play was from a backup tight end to a starting cornerback. The longest scoring play for the Owls came from their defense. The final touchdown pass of the game, from Owls quarterback Henry Burris to fullback Sid Morse, came with just 1 minute and 14 seconds remaining, for a 23-20 thriller over Army in front of 31,215 at Michie Stadium.

WEST POINT, N.Y. - No Bernard Pierce? No problem. Temple was without its leading rusher and touchdown-maker when it visited Army on Saturday afternoon at scenic Michie Stadium. The sophomore star had suffered a sprained ankle the previous week against Penn State and did not make the trip. But Temple had another weapon: Matt Brown. The 5-foot-5, 170-pound running back gained a career-high 226 yards and scored a personal-best four touchdowns for the Owls, who rallied for a 42-35 victory.

WEST POINT, N.Y. - Temple appeared befuddled for much of Saturday afternoon. Army quarterback Trent Steelman was running the spread/triple offense with aplomb, and the Black Knights were burning the Owls through the air and on the ground. In the third quarter, Temple was facing a 15-point deficit. That was before the Owls put on an offensive display of their own, scoring four consecutive touchdowns en route to a 42-35 win at scenic Michie Stadium. The nonleague victory in front of a homecoming crowd of 33,065 was their most impressive performance of the season.

This is why Bobby Ross won't rest until he brings respectability back to Army football: Army legend Glenn Davis, the 1946 Heisman Trophy winner, has advanced prostate cancer that has spread to his brain, bladder and liver. Still, he let Ross know over the phone last week that he would do anything to help out, even visit recruits near his home in California. Maj. Gen. Ray Odierno, West Point Class of 1976, told Ross during a visit to his Michie Stadium office this spring that his hiring as coach had raised the spirits of troops fighting in Iraq.
