Delone Carter ran for 198 yards and two touchdowns, Marcus Sales caught three long TD passes and Syracuse beat the Kansas State Wildcats 36-34 in the first Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.
It’s been almost 50 years since a bowl game was played in the Big Apple. What, you don’t remember the Gotham Bowl at the original Yankee Stadium back in 1962?
Two programs that haven’t been to the postseason in a while will try to finish off resurgent seasons on an upswing. Key matchup: Kansas State’s run defense, ranked 118th in the nation, vs. Syracuse’s two tailbacks, Delone Carter and Antwon Bailey.
