Bilo's Quick Military Bowl Recap

Wake Forest 34, Temple 26

Wake Forest built a 31-7 lead, and then held on for a win in the Military Bowl, their first bowl win since 2008, and they also finished with a winning record for the first time since that same season.
John Wolford passed for 189 yards and a pair of TDs before leaving the game with an injury. This was only the second time that the Demon Deacons finished with 30 points in a game during the Dave Clawson era.
Wake Forest finished with 368 yards in the win, but only had 106 yards in the second half.
It was a miserable game for Temple, who finished just 1/12 on 3rd down conversions, and they also finished with just -20 yards rushing in the loss. Phillip Walker did what he could, passing for 396 yards and 2 TDs in the loss for the Owls.
Wake Forest had lost 17 consecutive games against ranked opponents before this win.
Adonis Jennings and Ventell Bryant combined for 305 yards receiving in the loss for Temple.
Wolford did not play beyond the first drive of the second half for Wake Forest.

2017 Openers: Temple at Notre Dame (9/2); Wake Forest TBA
