IN CASE you didn't do well in geography, Albuquerque, N.M., is a little more than 5,000 feet above sea level. How that might impact a football player during a game, Temple coach Steve Addazio has no clue. Addazio's Owls will play Wyoming there on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl. "What's going to happen?" Addazio said yesterday. "I'm going to get off the plane and start gasping for air. I'm not sure. But I don't worry about it. I can't change it. "You buckle your chinstraps up, come off the ball and rock and roll . . . "They'll get to experience a whole different venue.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Allen Iverson might not think much of it, but there are a number of Temple players who are sad to see practice end. For all intents and purposes, Sunday morning's practice at Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach was the last for the Owls as they prepare for Tuesday's Boca Raton Bowl against Toledo. On Monday the team will do a walk-through at FAU Stadium, site of the game. The seniors are attempting to tread the fine line between savoring each final memory and going about business.

An academic cheating scandal could leave Florida State without as many as 25 players when the Seminoles go against Kentucky in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 31. "We have some players not traveling for one reason and some for another, including those who are ineligible for the bowl because of academic issues," coach Bobby Bowden said in a statement released by the university yesterday. Bowden put the number of players involved in the 25-player range. Many of the players also could be ruled ineligible for some games next season for their connection to the cheating scandal earlier this year.

Chris Coyer's situation has changed dramatically in one year. Last summer, he was recognized for failing to impress when given the opportunity at practice. And in the process, the quarterback began the 2011 season behind Chester Stewart and Mike Gerardi on the depth chart. Fast forward to this summer. Coyer will be one of the headliners at Tuesday's Big East Football Kickoff in Newport, R.I. He'll probably answer questions about his breakout performance during the latter part of the 2011 season.

It might have been the most important completion of Temple's season and it wasn't surprising that receiver John Christopher made it. The 5-foot-11, 189-pound senior is the epitome of a team player. Christopher does not worry about playing time or statistics, and his efforts on and off the field have played a major role in Temple's revival. As for the catch, it occurred during the third game of the season. Temple had opened with upset wins over Penn State and Cincinnati but was staring at defeat, trailing by 23-22 at Massachusetts in the final minute.

Brother Derek, the early Kentucky Derby favorite, arrived safely at Churchill Downs yesterday after making the cross-country trip from Santa Anita Park in California. The winner of the Santa Anita Derby is scheduled to get his first look today at the track, in Louisville, Ky., with a workout scheduled for Monday under jockey Alex Solis. Barbaro, undefeated in five career starts, made the 75-mile commute from Keeneland to Churchill Downs. Jurisprudence The woman who says she was raped by three members of Duke's lacrosse team told police 10 years ago that she was raped by three men, filing a 1996 complaint that said she had been assaulted three years earlier when she was 14. Authorities in Creedmoor, N.C., said none of the men named in the decade-old report was ever charged, but they did not have details on why. Patrick Arnold, a scientist accused of supplying the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative with the drug known as "the clear," will plead guilty to illegally distributing performance-enhancing drugs as part of a plea bargain in federal court, the Associated Press reported.

IT IS EARLY, but I am jumping on the Temple football bandwagon. Over the next few weeks, it will get crowded and I want to make sure I have my seat reserved for the final stop. I am dreaming big. Perhaps if the stars align and every card falls right you possibly/maybe/might put Temple and College Football Playoff together in the same sentence. Stop choking on your scrapple. I concede that there is more likely to be 5 feet of snow in the Orange Bowl or Cotton Bowl than a storm of Cherry and White on New Year's Eve for the national semifinals.

Former Temple football coach Steve Addazio didn't establish roots in Philadelphia for long, but he said his home of the previous two years will always be a special place in what has been a nomadic coaching career. Addazio, 54, earned his first college head coaching job at Temple in the 2010 season, and he is now guiding Boston College, which opens its season by hosting Villanova in Saturday's noon matchup. Addazio said he understands that his quick departure from Temple didn't sit well with many alumni, players, and fans.

The Temple Owls have made a few changes since new head coach Matt Rhule took over in December, and with 15 practices down, the Owls are watching the pieces of the puzzle come together. The Owls play in their annual Cherry and White game on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Chodoff Field. They held competitive scrimmage last Saturday and again on Tuesday. Rhule said after Tuesday's practice that Connor Reilly, who spent last year buried deep on the depth chart, likely will be the starter Saturday.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - Temple could have a tough time reaching a milestone unless quarterback Chris Coyer is on top of his game. A victory over Connecticut on Saturday at Rentschler Field in East Hartford would mark the first consecutive Big East Conference victories ever for the Owls. Temple rejoined the league this year after being kicked out after the 2004 season. A traditional run-first team, the Owls (2-2, 1-0 Big East) cannot afford to be one-dimensional against the Huskies (3-3, 0-1)

Going in, there was thought that Byrd Stadium would be a hostile environment. And it was on that September day last year, when Maryland players refused to give Temple its half of the field during pregame warm-ups. Atlantic Coast Conference bravado against non-BCS inferiority, right? Then the better, tougher, and grittier squad smacked Maryland with punishing play: Owls 38, Terrapins 7. Temple turned into a national story. Maryland turned into a national punch line. At the time, Temple's win was being recognized as its biggest since upsetting No. 14 Virginia Tech, 28-24, in Blacksburg, Va., in 1998.
