This years’ Military Bowl should be a good one with the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Temple Owls facing off in Annapolis.
This is the first meeting ever between the two teams.
North Carolina Tar Heels
There were not many expectations heading into the season with Mack Brown in his first season, but they have done enough to get into a bowl game. With two games left in the season the Tar Heels needed to win back to back games to make a bowl game and they got the job done.
In their last game of the season they were double-digit favorites over the NC State Wolfpack and they had no issue getting the job done winning 41-10.
The future of the Tar Heels is bright with Sam Howell under center. He has thrown for 3,347 yards, 35 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
Over the last three games the defense has been really good giving up only 17 points per game and the defense is going to need to be good in this one.
If the defense is good, they should at least have a chance to win this game and that’s all they can ask for in this one.
On the other side of this matchup is the Temple Owls who have to feel disrespected being the underdogs in this game.
They come into this game having won three of the last four games with the only loss coming during that stretch against the Cincinnati Bearcats. They covered the spread in each of those games though and they have a lot of confidence in this game.
Over the last three games the Temple offense is averaging 30.3 points per game, and the defense has been good giving up 17.7 points per game.
At quarterback the Owls are led by Anthony Russo who has thrown for 2,733 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
At times turnovers have been an issue for him, and it’s something they can’t let take over this game. If he is turning the ball over and giving the Tar Heels some short fields, the Owls could be in a lot of trouble in this game.
If he is taking care of the ball, the Owls are going to have a good chance to come away with a victory in this game.

This might be a neutral field, but this is a home game for the Owls and they are going to take advantage of that. Take the points if you are worried about it, but the money line has some great value in this game.
