SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Syracuse Orange are headed for the
Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.
Director of athletics Daryl Gross accepted the invitation this
morning. An opponent has not yet been decided for the Dec. 30 game.
The contest will mark the first NCAA football bowl game in the
Bronx since the Gotham Bowl on Dec. 15, 1962, when Nebraska edged
Miami 36-34 at the original Yankee Stadium.
Syracuse has not played in a bowl game since losing 51-14 to
Georgia Tech in the 2004 Champs Sports Bowl.
