Temple has approached Hawaii about trying to schedule a football game against the Warriors at Aloha Stadium this December.

UH is looking at the possibility.

“It’s very far from a done deal. We’re going through the due diligence,” acting athletic director Rockne Freitas said.

UH has received clearance from the Mountain West for the venture and is awaiting the same from the NCAA, Freitas said.

Owls officials were not immediately available for comment.

Temple is 3-3 and its current schedule has 11 games with its last one on Nov. 23. Hawaii (1-5) has a 12-game schedule that ends Dec. 1. UH and teams that play the Warriors are allowed to play 13 regular-season games per season, one above the normal limit.
