Temple Owls Basketball TicketsThe Temple Owls are looking to surpass expectations again this year. Last season, they tied for third with the UCF Knights in the American Athletic Conference after being picked to finish sixth. This has led to a wave of optimism for the 2019-2020 season. The Owls team played its first season in 1894 and has since garnered more than 1,925 all-time wins. The team has won far more games than it has lost in the past 120-plus years. With this record, Temple has risen to No. 5 in the top 10 Division I schools in total victories. The team has had 33 NCAA Tournament appearances, 19 NIT appearances, seven Elite Eights, two Final Fours, seven All-Americans and 10 Conference Players of the Year. This prestigious record sets up the Owls as a must-follow team. With several intense matchups at the Liacouras Center this year, now is the time to get your Temple Owls' basketball tickets at StubHub.
