Pinstripe Bowl 2011: Rutgers Will Face Iowa State, According To Report

According to Brett McMurphy of CBS news, sources are reporting that the participants in this year's Pinstripe Bowl will be the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Iowa State Cyclones.

Rutgers finished 2011 with an overall 8-4 record, going 4-3 in Big East conference play. Iowa State finished with an overall 6-6 record in the Big 12. They were 3-6 in conference play.

The Pinstripe Bowl will hold its second annual game this year, with the inaugural game kicking off last year. The game is played in Yankee Stadium in New York, New York, offering a unique setting for a college football game. The Pinstripe Bowl became the 35th bowl last season and the first New York area Bowl since the Garden State Bowl in 1981. The game is sponsored by New Era, so there will no doubt be some sweet 5950 hats on the sidelines.

The game will be shown live on ESPN and called by a recognizable ESPN crew, Chris Fowler, Jesse Palmer & Tom Rinaldi. The game will pit a team from the Big 12 and the Big East against one another.

Game date, time: 3:20 pm ET, Friday, December 30th

Location: Yankee Stadium, New York, NY

TV channel: ESPN

2010 winner and loser: Syracuse defeated Kansas State 36-34
