To help prime you for Thursday's college football quadrupleheader, we've compiled this handy list of fun factoids concerning the 2010 Pinstripe Bowl.
Proper name: The New Era Pinstripe Bowl, reminding us that what's new isn't always what's good.
Setting: This will be the second college football game played at the new Yankee Stadium, which you may have heard a little bit about.
Traditional conference pairing: This is the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl, but tie-ins going forward will include the Big East, Big 12, and Notre Dame (for maximum hatefulness).
2010 matchup: It's a short trip for one team: The 7-5 Syracuse Orange will face the 7-5 Kansas State Wildcats.
Announcers: For the second consecutive day, bowl viewers will be under the wing of a Griese (this time the younger), along with Bob Wischusen and Eamon McAnaney.
Neatest fact: The new Yankee Stadium is not actually located in Manhattan, but you'll never guess that from the number of Manhattan, Kansas jokes the announcers will make.
Tidbits of interest: It's a football field in Yankee Stadium! Did you know?
