Villanova defeats Temple to complete first FCS over FBS upset of 2018
Phenomenal underdog stories are just one of the great parts about sports.
Whether a small school beats a bigger school or a middle of the road team defeats a juggernaut, happiness for the little guy ensues. On Saturday, in Week 1 of the 2018 college football season, an intriguing upset took place.
For the betting public, Temple entered its season opener against Villanova — who competes in the FCS — as 15-point favorites.
The Owls failed to cover.

But apparently, we shouldn’t be overlooking its football program either.
