Pinstripe Bowl, Syracuse Vs. Kansas State: Yankee Stadium Goes Bowling

The first-ever Pinstripe Bowl, held in New York City's Yankee Stadium, pairs the 7-5 Syracuse Orange and the 7-5 Kansas St. Wildcats. It's Cuse's first bowl game since 2004 after five straight losing seasons, but the bigger bowl return story is K-State coach Bill Snyder.

Snyder led the Cats to 11 straight bowls and four straight 11-win seasons before a couple of down years led to Ron Prince's illustrious campaign. After Prince had righted the program with a pair of near-winning seasons, it took Snyder just two years in his second tenure to reach the Pinstripe. And here we are, Snyder's first bowl since the 2003 Fiesta.

Kansas State's explosive ground game features RB Daniel Thomas, eighth in the nation in yards from scrimmage. And the Cats will be likely to lean on Thomas even more than usual, as Syracuse's strength is its secondary, fifth in the nation in yards allowed per pass.
