TV/Radio: 6ABC; WPHT (1210-AM). Records: Temple 4-1, 1-0 Mid-American Conference; Northern Illinois 3-2, 1-0. Coaches: Temple, Al Golden (fifth season, 23-31); Northern Illinois, Jerry Kill (third season, 16-15). Temple outlook: With a 29-point run last week that wiped out a 15-point deficit and gave them a 42-35 victory at Army, the Owls registered what coach Al Golden called their biggest win since he took over the team. Temple accomplished that without running back Bernard Pierce (ankle)

Two days after a 31-17 loss to Northern Illinois, Temple coach Al Golden remained an unhappy man. "We obviously played a passionless game at NIU, and they executed at a much higher level than we did," Golden said Monday in a conference call with reporters. "We're not a very good team right now. We don't have a foundation right now, and the buck stops with me. I failed to get the team tough enough for the road trip. If you don't have a tough team, you can't win. I'm distraught. " His Owls had just finished practice.

Amid the muck and mire of Temple's 1989 football season, there has always been Northern Illinois, the safety school. Surely, with Northern Illinois, that obscure school from the farmlands of DeKalb, on the schedule, the Owls would not go through an entire season without a win. But they were disappointed yesterday at Veterans Stadium as Northern Illinois (6-2) sent Temple to its eighth consecutive loss of the season, 20-17, before 15,712. The loss was the 26th in a row for coach Jerry Berndt over three seasons (two at Rice and one at Temple)

Northern Illinois coach Joe Novak, whose football team is 1-4 entering its game against Temple tomorrow, understands what the mistake-prone Owls are going through. Both teams will take 0-2 league records into the Mid-American Conference interdivision contest at Lincoln Financial Field, where Temple will celebrate homecoming. "I watched Temple on tape, and they are kind of doing the same things we're doing," Novak said of the 0-5 Owls' penchant for making errors that lead to points for the opponent.

La Salle University showed up with its usual one-two scoring punch. Northern Illinois is full of effective counterpunchers. La Salle guards Kareem Townes and Paul Burke combined for 52 points, but the host Huskies welcomed the Explorers with a balanced scoring attack en route to an 85-75 victory at the Chick Evans Field House. Townes led all scorers with 32 points, while Burke added 20. It was the lack of scoring and execution away from the backcourt tandem that left La Salle coach Speedy Morris yearning for a team performance.

Fourth of a series of looks at positions the Eagles might target in this week's NFL draft. What they have: Eagles beat writers talked to general manager Howie Roseman for nearly an hour last week, and the thing that came through most clearly was that Roseman feels the Malcolm Jenkins signing was the Eagles; big safety move of the offseason. Roseman also touted 2013 rookie Earl Wolff and even Nate Allen, the disappointing 2010 second-rounder who was brought back on a 1-year deal.

Without playing a game, Ohio State moved up a spot to third in the Associated Press college football rankings. At this rate, the Buckeyes (12-0), banned from the postseason bowls because of NCAA sanctions, could end up national champions. Notre Dame ended the regular season No. 1 in the AP poll for the first time since 1988, the last championship season for the Irish. The Irish (12-0) completed their regular season last week and will play No. 2 Alabama in the BCS championship game in Miami on Jan. 7. Notre Dame is a unanimous No. 1 for the second straight week.

LaMichael James ran for 219 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 8 Oregon beat UCLA, 49-31, in the inaugural Pac-12 championship game Friday night for the Ducks' third straight conference title and a likely berth in the Rose Bowl. Rick Neuheisel tipped his hat to the UCLA fans in his last game as coach. The former Bruins quarterback was fired this week after four seasons with his alma mater. While the Bruins (6-7) played with passion for their outgoing coach and kept it closer than many thought they would, it was not enough to overcome the Ducks (11-2)

The Temple Owls sulked inside their huddle, their double-digit lead shrunken to almost nothing. Their opponent had the momentum and energy, needing only a good second-half push to knock a staggering team over. Then, an Owls captain spoke up. "I told them, I was doing a pretty good job down low," senior power forward Lavoy Allen told his teammates. Out of that huddle, Allen backed up his words. The 6-foot-9 senior scored 11 of Temple's first 13 points during a game-deciding 17-8 run that led to an 84-74 victory over Northern Illinois at the Liacouras Center.
