This year, the Temple-Villanova rivalry is as intense as ever, given the recent Big East drama, which ended with the Owls in the league for all sports and Villanova for all but football. "They wanted to be in the Big East and we wanted to be in the Big East," said Temple placekicker Brandon McManus, who also punts for the Owls. "It just creates more entertainment for the game."
