Big East Bowl Predictions: Syracuse at Yankee Stadium?

According to the latest bowl predictions from ESPN.com and CollegeFootballNews.com, the Syracuse Orange will be playing in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on December 30 at Yankee Stadium.

“Last Sunday, I had red-hot Syracuse taking the league’s No. 2 spot in the Champs Sports Bowl,” wrote ESPN.com Big East blogger Brian Bennett on Sunday. “After the home loss to Louisville over the weekend, I have the Orange staying much closer to home and helping usher in the first posteason football game at new Yankee Stadium.”

CollegeFootballNews.com has the Orange (6-3, 3-2 Big East), who need one more victory to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2004, playing Kansas State (6-3, 3-3 Big 12).

CBSSports.com has Syracuse battling NC State (6-3, 3-2 ACC) in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 31 in Charlotte, NC.

All three websites have Pittsburgh (5-3, 3-0) earning the conference’s BCS bowl bid and playing in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ on Jan. 1.

Other Big East schools projected to earn bowl bids are: West Virginia (5-3, 1-2), Louisville (5-4, 2-2), South Florida (5-3, 2-2) and Connecticut (4-4, 1-2).

Rutgers (4-4, 1-2) wasn’t projected to earn a bowl invitation.
