NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --Temple University says it's seeing a huge spike in the number of applications this year.
The school says 32 thousand 600 students have applied to come to Temple this fall.
That's up 15 percent from last year, and the deadline hasn't even arrived yet.
Last year Temple had 30 thousand applicants, which set a record.
Some University officials are crediting the success of Temple's football team for the increased interest in the school.
