At the end of the Pinstripe Bowl’s third quarter, the Syracuse Orange are up by six over the Kansas St. Wildcats. Should be seven, but a hooked extra point after a 15-yard touchdown run by RB Delone Carter had the Cats looking to take their first lead since the first quarter.
Carter has 128 yards, and joins K-State RB Daniel Thomas in rushing for multiple touchdowns.
On the responding drive, the Wildcats converted two fourth downs before Thomas ran in from the goal line on an option pitch, and Cuse has 11 minutes left to make up for that special teams misfire.
Both teams have displayed the virtues of clean livin’, committing no turnovers and only a handful of penalties between them. The field is not clean, and I’m going to keep mentioning how slick it is until somebody does something about it.
