How to Watch: Temple vs Tulsa in American Athletic semifinal

After a record-setting regular season, the Owls look to finish it with some hardware and an NCAA tournament berth



Temple Men’s Soccer looks to continue their winning streak Thursday afternoon when the Owls take on Tulsa in the American Athletic Conference semifinals in Florida.

It will be the cherry and white’s fourth match in just two weeks.

After winning their season opener, the Owls dropped three straight but finished with a 5-4-1 record to qualify for the AAC tournament for the fourth straight year.

On the opposite side Tulsa got off to a hot run going 5-1-1 however the gale force winds fizzled out at the end. As they ended the season losing two of their last three matches. One key thing to watch in the matchup is Tulsa’s Alex Meinhard. Meinhard, who is the AAC’s goal leader, has missed the last three matches. Without him in the lineup the Golden Hurricanes score .67 goals per match. 

The winner will face the winner of top-seeded UCF and SMU in the final on Saturday with an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on the line. The Owls last qualified for the tournament in 1985. The field for the tournament has been reduced to 36 teams
