Temple vs. Wake Forest: How to watch, live stream

  Wake Forest running back Cade Carney (36) looks to help steer his team to victory against Temple.

No. 23 Temple is red hot, having won seven games in a row and nine of its last 10 to check into the Military Bowl with a 10-3 record. Wake Forest comes in on the other side of the spectrum, having lost three straight outings and six of its last eight for a 6-6 overall mark. Both teams are making their second Military Bowl appearance and have met just once before: a 36-0 Temple victory on Nov. 1, 1930 – the first night game played at Temple Stadium. The Owls have won consecutive East Division titles in the American Athletic Conference while posting back-to-back 10-win seasons, and they are seeking a school-record 11th win. The Demon Deacons are making their first bowl appearance since 2011, but they have already doubled their win total from a season ago.
