In the animal kingdom, football is played with cheetah running backs, buffalo linemen, and a seagull that is forced to curl up and act as the ball. Catch humanity's version of the animals' gridiron gallantry with today's GrouponLive deal: for $12, you get one ticket to see the Temple Owls football team play the Toledo Rockets at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday, October 1, at 12 p.m. (a $24.50 value). Seats are located in end-zone sections 128–131, and doors open at 10:30 a.m. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to the game for Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
Powered by 13 returning starters and new head coach Steve Addazio, the Temple Owls snatch the ball from their opponents to hoot and flap toward the end zone. With seats in touchdown territory, Groupon holders can behold celebratory leaps and triumphant shimmies down the goal posts. In preseason play, junior running back Bernard Pierce has earned first-team all-conference honors for his powerful dashes and bold question marks embedded into the stadium grass with his cleats, and junior kicker Brandon McManus hopes to lead scoring for a second year by topping his 70-point total from 2010. Hungry for victories, senior quarterback Chester Stewart plans to pepper his scrambles with nimble dodges and crispy bacon stowed in his helmet.
Lincoln Financial Field welcomes visitors with a lush natural-grass field and an ample supply of fresh air. Since the game takes place on Breast Cancer Awareness Day, the Owls encourage fans to pair their cherry-and-white duds with a pink T-shirt or a jumpsuit made of bubblegum.
