The Temple vs. Toledo live stream online and televised 2015 Boca Raton Bowl arrives Tuesday night for college football fans to enjoy. The No. 24 Owls will have the role of slight favorites heading into this matchup against the 9-2 Rockets of the MAC West conference. Toledo managed to knock off a ranked Arkansas team back in September, showing their ability to hang tough with teams considered more talented. Tuesday’s NCAA football live streaming and televised bowl game will be presented through the ESPN networks for fans to enjoy as part of the holiday traditions this week.
The Philly.com website reported on Dec. 22 that keys to this game will include both teams stopping the run and “getting heat on quarterbacks.” Temple currently averages 4.1 yards per carry while Toledo averages 5.1, showing that both are dynamic with the run game. In addition to that, both teams feature quarterbacks who are well protected, or agile, as Toledo’s Phillip Ely has only been sacked for times out of 375 attempted passes, and Temple’s P.J. Walker has been sacked 17 times this season, thanks to a solid offensive line in front of him.
Among the other storylines to watch today will be the fact that Toledo has a brand new coach in Jason Candle, who has taken over for previous coach Matt Campbell. Campbell left for the job at Iowa State, which leaves Candle the Boca Raton Bowl as his first major test. On the opposing side he’ll be facing Matt Rhule who may one day be coaching in a Power 5 conference. For now, he’s done a brilliant job of guiding this Owls team to a 10-win season and another bowl game. Getting the win will further add to Rhule’s resume as he looks towards the future.
As of this report, many sports books have Temple as three-point favorites to win this bowl game Tuesday. On the moneyline, the Owls are -140 favorites while Toledo is a +130 underdog. Of note, the Rockets are 2-0 against the spread as underdogs during the past season, while Temple is 4-3 as the favorite. The points total for the game is set around 50 points for over/under bettors to contemplate.
