Temple expects to face an angry Toledo squad

Temple believes Toledo will be motivated after being shortchanged in Saturday's 33-30 overtime setback to Syracuse.

The Orange appeared to miss an extra-point attempt with 2 minutes, 7 seconds remaining. The Orange, however, led by 30-27 after the officials on the field ruled the conversion was successful. Replay officials confirmed the ruling.

Syracuse went on to win in overtime.

But Terry McAulay, the Big East coordinator of football officiating, later issued a statement that both the field and booth officials ruled incorrectly on the controversial extra point.

Here's what Temple coach Steve Addazio said what he expects this Saturday from Toledo.
