Kansas State (7-5) vs. Syracuse (7-5) (PK)
This is the bowl they have at the new Yankee Stadium? Kansas State versus Syracuse? That’s it?
Maybe it’s the Yankees’ fault for creating such outsized expectations for themselves, thus making me expect more from a bowl game played at their stadium. I don’t know. Should I have expectations for this bowl?
Anyway, this game blows away the Armed Forces bowl as the most boring matchup of the day. Sure, K-State’s Daniel Thomas is good, but these two teams are so non-descript that it’s impossible to pick this game. Oh hey look the oddsmakers agreed.
I like Bill Snyder so the hell with it…
Pick: Kansas State
