Temple Can’t Seem To Beat Toledo

Temple NCAA Football

The Temple Owls come into the Boca Raton Bowl as the favorite, but they’ve struggled against the Toldeo Rockets for some time. Temple is 1-5 SU and ATS in their past six games against Toledo, but will look to end their season on a high note on December 22nd.

Shark Bites
  • Toledo is 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games.
  • Temple is 11-3 SU and 10-4 ATS in their past 14 games.
  • Temple linebacker Tyler Matakevich has led the team in tackles in every game this season.

Temple could have put themselves in prime position for a New Year’s Six Bowl game, but an AAC Championship loss to Houston has them playing here instead. If the Owls want to win a bowl game, they’ll need quarterback P.J. Walker to perform better than he did against Houston, as the signal caller threw a lot of questionable passes over the middle in that game.

Toldeo will be playing this game without former head coach Matt Campbell who left the team for Iowa State and will not be on the sidelines. The Rockets will turn to offensive coordinator Jason Candle to make the calls in what will likely be an interview for the permanent position.
