Blitzalytics Analysis


Line North Carolina (-4.5) Over/Under 53 Against the Spread - North Carolina (7-5) Temple (8-4)


Both teams had flashes of brilliance: North Carolina beating South Carolina and Miami-Florida in consecutive weeks as well as coming to a two-point conversion away from knocking off now playoff-bound Clemson. Temple handing Memphis their only loss as well as beating Maryland and giving Cincinnati all they could handle in a two-point loss. Both teams also had moments of infamy: The Tar Heels losing to App. State and blowing the game at Virginia Tech. Temple losing at Buffalo and getting destroyed at home by 42 against UCF.


The Degenerate Menace Says: This is Mack Brown’s first bowl game since returning to coaching. He has a knack for getting his team up for the bigger games and he typically does well in the postseason. Temple has been absolutely abhorrent playing away from home, especially against the spread. Let’s go with the Tar Heels.


Prediction: North Carolina 32 - Temple 20
