Owls are one win away from AAC East crown after blasting Tulane, 31-0

NEW ORLEANS -- Temple dominated from start to finish and moved within one victory of its second consecutive AAC East title following a 31-0 whitewash of Tulane on Saturday at Yulman Stadium.

Senior quarterback Phillip Walker completed 18 of 33 passes for 337 yards and two touchdowns and the Cherry and White defense posted its second straight shutout as the Owls picked up their fifth straight win and improved to 8-3 this season.  They remain in first place in the AAC East with a 6-1 mark in league play, and will play for the AAC East crown in their regular season finale against East Carolina next Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field.
