Prediction & Game Preview To Come
Navy-Marine Corps. Stadium, Annapolis, MD, 3:30 ET, ESPN
Temple, American Athletic, 10-3
A bridesmaid in last year’s American Athletic championship game, the Owls roared past Navy to win this year to close out with a seven-game winning streak in impressive fashion. You want a hot team coming into the post-season? The Owls have won their last five games by a combined score of 157 to 33, helped by a defense that finished the year second in pass defense and third in total D.
Wake Forest, ACC, 6-6
This isn’t a flashy team that’ll get anyone fired up, but it’s a good, solid squad that doesn’t make mistakes, plays solid defense, and capitalizes on everyone’s mistakes. If that sounds boring, it is – it got the Demon Deacons to a bowl game. On a three-game losing streak, the Demon Deacon offense went from lousy to non-existent, coming up with 14 points or fewer in five of the last six games – all losses.
