EagleBank Bowl Recap
At a crisp and sunny day at RFK Stadium, Washington DC hosted the 2009 EagleBank Bowl. Temple University made it’s first postseason appearance since 1979 and their opponent UCLA secured their position in the bowl when Navy defeated Army on December 12. The match-up should have been fairly easy for the UCLA Bruins, but with Temple showing up with a lot of heart, a lot of fight and a lot of fans, the 2009 Eagle Bank Bowl was anything but a predictable game. Tuesdays second annual EagleBank Bowl was a fight until the end.
Temple dominated the first two quarters leading 21 to 10 at the half. A series of unfortunate events for the Owls changed the momentum of the game. First, they lost their star running back to what appeared to be a shoulder injury. Then, in the third quarter, a referee on the field spotted the ball about a foot further back from where the scrambling Temple 5’5 running back, Matt Brown stopped his forward momentum. This placing cost Temple a first down inside the Bruins ten yard line. An official review was conducted, but the controversial call was upheld. Temple lost possession of the ball by downs on the next play.
The Owl’s were still up 21 – 20 but ultimately the skill of UCLA’s defense, led by Brian Price, proved too much. The Bruins were able to intercept the ball at the Temple 2 yard line for a touchdown. A two point conversion and a bad snap for a punt, that sent the ball into Temple’s own end-zone, brought the 2009 EagleBank Bowl to the final score:
Proceeds from the EagleBank Bowl go the the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Project helps severely wounded soldiers and their families and provides services which help them ultimately transition back into civilian life.
