PHILADELPHIA - The excitement of Temple football's 5-0 start has led to what the school calls unprecedented interest in the program- and now they have their second home sell-out of the year.
Tickets for the Owls' home game against Notre Dame on October 31 at Lincoln Financial Field are sold out, Temple announced on its website Tuesday.
Following the sell-out crowd for Temple's win over Penn State last month, this marks the first time the team has had two home sellouts in the same season since they moved their games to the Sports Complex in 1976. Tickets are available, however, for Saturday's home game against UCF at 7:30 p.m.
"The energy and buzz surrounding our football program has never been greater," Temple University Director of Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft said in a statement.
"It has been a special year for our entire University, and we are looking forward to an exciting event on Halloween for our fans and the city of Philadelphia."
The Halloween game, the first-ever matchup between Temple and Notre Dame in the city of Philadelphia, does not yet have an official kickoff time. Coach Matt Rhule's team will play the Irish, now 5-1.
