The American Athletic Conference announced several kickoff times, with half of Temple's 12 games now confirmed.

The Sept. 1 opener vs. Villanova at Lincoln Financial Field will have a noon kickoff.

The Owls play two Thursday night games on ESPN and both will start at 7:30 p.m.

One is Temple's first AAC game, Sept. 20 against Tulsa at Lincoln Financial Field, and the other is Nov. 1 at defending AAC champion Central Florida.

Due to television considerations, the start time of a game may not be known for 10 days in advance and in certain situations it is as little as six days.

Last year Temple went 7-6, winning four of its last five games, including a 28-3 win over FIU in the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.
