EagleBank Bowl: Last bid to be decided Dec. 12

While Temple has received a bid to play in the EagleBank Bowl, it doesn't know which team to prepare for yet -- Army or UCLA

That will all be decided Saturday, Dec. 12 on CBS.

If Army beats Navy, the Black Knights will earn their first bowl bid since 1996. Army had a contract at the beginning of the season that if it got to 6-6 (bowl-eligible) it would play in Washington D.C.

If Navy wins, UCLA will earn the spot. The Bruins are 6-6 and bowl-eligible, but the Pac-10 had only six bowl spots and seven bowl-eligible teams.

So UCLA must wait.

"In either scenario, we feel we have a great matchup for this year's EagleBank Bowl," said Steve Beck, Executive Director of the EagleBank Bowl. "We look forward to hosting the players, coaches and their fans for a tremendous week of fun in the nation's capital."

Meanwhile, Temple will be making its first bowl appearance since winning the 1979 Garden State Bowl over California.

The EagleBank Bowl will be played on Dec. 29 at 4:30 p.m. at RFK Stadium.
