Venue: Military Bowl Presented By Northrop Grumman
When: Tuesday, December 27, 2016 - 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Where: Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium
Who: Temple Owls vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
The Temple Owls had to be a bit shaken when Matt Rhule suddenly left the team for the Baylor job in the beginning of December. They still have three weeks or so to prepare for the Military Bowl under the direction of interim coach Ed Foley, but they clearly aren't going to be the exact same team with Foley in charge.
The good news is that the formula doesn't need to change all that much. The Owls are going to hand the ball off a ton, throw safe passes, not turn the ball over, punt a lot, and let their defense do the rest. Against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, that's a perfect strategy. We know the Wake Forest doesn't score in the 20s all that often, and this is arguably the toughest defense battle it has had to face all season long. There's a reason why the Owls went a stunning 12-1 ATS, covering each of their last 12 games of the season.

Preview: The Wake Forest Demon Deacons certainly weren't the greatest of the bowl teams this year, but just the fact that they're playing in a bowl game for the first time since 2011 is special for them. They draw the Temple Owls in the Military Bowl, a game that could end up being underrated should the Deacs really show some improvement with their extra practice time leading into the holidays.
