Temple went 2-0 this weekend shutting out both Appalachian State 4-0 at home Friday and then No. 20 Drexel 1-0 on the road Sunday.

The Owls have three games remaining on the schedule. The last home game of the season will be against conference opponent Georgetown on Oct. 25 followed by two road matchups against Lafayette on Oct. 27 and No. 2 Connecticut on Nov. 2.
