College Bowl Picks, Pinstripe Bowl: Syracuse Vs. Kansas State

The 2010 college football postseason rattles on toward Glendale, and it's time to place all your money set aside for Christmas shopping on ridiculous, half-assed bowl games played by largely inept football teams. Degenerate gamblers, start your engines. Now playing: Syracuse and Kansas State in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

The line: Vegas is iffy on this game, favoring K-State by as much as 2.5 and Syracuse by as much as a point.

Notable Syracuse units: Try notably bad, brah: The Orange rank 106th nationally in total offense, relying largely on their 13th-ranked scoring defense to put up points and their 5th-ranked pass defense to keep opponents' scoreboard aspirations in check.

Notable Kansas State units: The Wildcats manage to field a top-20 offense that never, ever passes the ball, which should keep them well off the Orange secondary's radar.

The pick: This is senior Wildcat RB Daniel Thomas' swan song in purple, and we're betting he's raring to put on a show for the scouts. K-State by a touchdown or two.

The 2010 Pinstripe Bowl kicks off at 3:20 p.m. EST. The game will be televised on ESPN. Browse our 2010 college football postseason schedule for a complete list of bowls.
