Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib will ring the opening bell for the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday, according to John Antonik of West Virginia University.

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen will also ring the bell, according to Antonik.

Nassib, a native of West Chester, Pa., is coming off his best collegiate season as a quarterback. As a senior this year, Nassib completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,619 yards and 24 touchdowns. He threw just nine interceptions.

Nassib's ringing of the bell comes just two days before his Orange take on West Virginia in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Saturday at 3:15 p.m. ET

Syracuse had a strong regular season this year. The Orange went 7-5 overall with a 5-2 mark in the Big East. Their conference record was the best in the Big East, along with Louisville, Rutgers and Cincinnati, who all finished at 5-2.

Nassib is considered to be a Top 10 quarterback available in next year's NFL Draft.
