Temple has a Friday night matchup with South Florida with first place in the American Athletic Conference’s East Division at stake.
Temple’s offense took control to help lead the Owls to a 48-20 victory against the University of North Carolina at Charlotte on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field.
Added to the lease while the university evaluates the feasibility of an on-campus stadium, the two consecutive one-year options mean the Owls could play at Lincoln Financial Field in 2018 and 2019.
An on-campus stadium presents a possibility for long-term financial growth for Temple's football team.
The Eagles rejected statements President Theobald gave to Chronicle of Higher Ed.
Theobald said that a potential on-campus stadium is in "serious discussion."
