New Era Pinstripe Bowl: What You Need To Know

Sean Keeley of SB Nation's Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician posted a preview of the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, which will be played Thursday at Yankee Stadium (3:30 p.m. on ESPN).

Here is one of Keeley's factoids:

"Neatest fact: Syracuse and Kansas State are the closest thing to bowl game buddies that are out there. This will be their third bowl meeting since the 1997 season. They previous met in the Fiesta Bowl (KSU won) and the Insight.com Bowl (SU won), making this the rubber match."
