Actor and comedian Bill Cosby is giving some PR support to his alma mater Temple University as the school's football team prepares for its EagleBank Bowl Game on December 29. Temple will play UCLA and Cosby, a former running back for the Temple Owls, has been out and about talking to media about the game. The Los Angeles Times reports:
That leaves Cosby free to run the public relations field. He was a Temple running back in 1961 and 1962 and remained a high-profile supporter of the university's athletics. And he has been reveling in the Owls' newfound success in football, making the rounds with the media this week, even mapping out some travel itinerary items for the Bruins.
"UCLA hasn't come this far east of the Mississippi River in 30 years," he said. "We got them now."
