The Temple Owls return to bowl play this season, despite missing out last year with a winning record. Temple was snubbed last season after dropping their final two games, but against Wyoming they'll be looking to prove they belonged last year. "You always feel better when you win your bowl game, it's the last game, it's our ninth win, we wanna get that ninth win, it's really important to us," he said. "It just leaves a great taste in your mouth," Temple head coach Steve Addazio said. "That's what you're striving for."
Wyoming on the other hand is returning to a familiar spot in the New Mexico Bowl, where they defeated Fresno State in double overtime in the 2009 instance of the game. "We had such a tremendous time down here last time and we were really looking forward to the opportunity to come back again," Mountain West coach of the year Dave Christensen said. "We were hoping that this was the bowl we were going to get to. I think it is the perfect location for where we are located for our fan base to get to."
