Chances are that the Aug. 30 Temple-Navy football game at Franklin Field in Philadelphia won't shake up the polls. But a good time will be had by all in attendance.
And, thanks to creative Temple University marketing, part of the proceeds will go to help the USS New Jersey.
One dollar of every ticket will be donated to the battleship project. Also, special $5 tickets and free transportation from New Jersey are available for groups of 40 or more veterans. Former "Big J" crew members, their families and volunteers working on the ship are invited to attend the 7 p.m. game for free.
Sounds like a winning proposition, so long as the Temple folks don't mind bringing in busloads of fans who might support Navy.
