Mack Brown has moved North Carolina forward since taking over as a coach and alosmot pulley's doff an upset vs Clemson earlier this season and now gets a Bowl Game to preview their ascension.. Despite of this Im still not 100% sold on the Tar Heels and recently the ACC in Bowl games have failed to cash 4 straight as chalk against the AAC. Also Brown himself is just 1-7 ATS as a a HC as a bowl favorite of 4 or more points. Meanwhile, Temple is a team that must not be underestimated in their tenacity and are 5-1 ATS as an underdog while winning four times SU. The Temple offense was serviceable at 27.4 PPG (though 4-points below what their foes allowed on the season). The Owls defense is their strength and allowed just 23.4 PPG and were No. 4 in Red Zone Defense this season. TEMPLE is 14-3 ATS vs. poor passing defenses - allowing a comp. pct. of 58% or worse over the last 3 seasons.
