Wyoming a reasonable team. Seems like theres a d in their somwhere. all kinds of unders this season. They have played tougher opponents overall than temple who has been a disappointment in some minds. Pierce hurt....not hurt...good luck in the nfl kid!! Wyoming and und for the large!!!!

Common opponent of bowling green on the road. Wyoming won, Temple lost. Wyoming won at SD ST with a stud RB. Temple no notable wins on the road. I have to pick Wyoming here, especially in NM. The game isn't in Philly.

Wyoming is first in the Mountain West with 31 turnovers.  They also lead the Mountain West in fumbles forced. Both of those are good for the Pokes, who need to find a way to slow down Bernard Pierce,Will Temple get winded as the game goes along? I think they may! Albuquerque, N.M., is a little more than 5,000 feet above sea level.... Philly is approximately 445 feet above sea level,Laramie Wyomingelevation above sea level is about 7165 feet.... (WYO COACH)"I think our guys will be able to perform better because it is lower than Laramie and we train there the whole time" huff huff...puff puff for the Owls...Advantage Cowboys...Cowboy quarterback Brett Smith. With 2495 passing yards and 18 touchdowns, he will be truly be the best quarterback on the field.. Cowboys will have alot More Fans at this game being a 12 hour drive away...Temple has a Rookie coach and The Cowboys have a veteran coach, Cowboys won this bowl SU 2 years ago as a 12' point dog...I'm really surprised Temple is this big of a fav, Cowboys pass the ball very well and also run it well, Temple is suspect in pass defense and I can see this game going back and forth as Temple will run the football well,With the layoff longer for temple they may be rusty and maybe sloppy with Turnovers, Cowboys are ball hawking ,Like i said above,Wyoming is first in the Mountain West with 31 turnovers.  They also lead the Mountain West in fumbles forced. Temple has no Business laying 7 in this game.

Temple will run, but they won't run over Wyoming. Air Force and San Diego tried lost. Both were picked to finish higher than Wyoming in the Mountain West this year. Aztecs were lucky to get in a bowl game with their running back. 

Owls have one card to play. Run the ball. Wyoming doesn't have to worry about the pass. I suspect at least Wyoming will score at least one touchdown off a turnover.

On the flipside, Temple has a very stout defense. But they have not faced a spread offense like Wyoming's this year as far as I can tell. I think Christensen and offensive coordinator Greg Brandon (who both have coached in MAC) will crank up the speed of the no-huddle and keep Temple off balance and out of breath.

I took Wyoming at 6.5, and took them again at 7. Also have a little on the ML.

Some more food for thought:

Sagarin's strength of schedule comparison:

Temple - 121

Wyoming - 88

Temple played no top 10 schools, and only one in the Top 30 (lost). Wyoming played Boise State, along with TCU and Nebraska (0-3, but played Nebraska and TCU tough through the first half.).

Both of these teams finished strong, going 4-2 to finish the regular season.  Difference is Wyoming wins included two bowl-bound teams (one on the road), and their losses where to TCU and Boise State (both great teams).  Meanwhile Temple was beating Kent State (5-7), Army (3-9), Miami OH (4-8) and Buffalo (3-9).  In fact, Temple never beat a Div I team over .500 all year. 

 

Yes, I know that Temple is a running team, and the Cowboys give up a lot of yardage on the ground.  However, (1) lots of those Owl yards are due to their weak schedule, (2) Pierce has had injury problems all year – I doubt he’s 100% regardless of the reports, (3) the Cowboys have had two weeks to prepare for a Temple offense that is not that fancy (e.g. Wyoming knows what to expect), and (4) at this altitude, Owls will be sucking wind by the 4th quarter.

 

Taking the points (large) and the ML small…

 

Wyoming +7

Thanks all for the analysis...was wavering between Wyo +7 or the under for my Survivor pick.
