It all comes down to this. Syracuse. Boston College. The right to play a Sun Belt team in a bowl you've never heard of...

In a weird way, I'm glad bowl eligibility has come down to this. It adds another layer to the Syracuse Orange - Boston College Eagles rivalry one way or another, giving both fanbases something to remember for next year.

The Orange and Eagles will get it on at 3:30 p.m. Eastern in the Carrier Dome. The game will be televised on the ACC RSN:

BC is still a 2.5 point favorite, which means Syracuse will have to find a way to miss two and a half extra points this time.

Sean Hickey is listed as doubtful for the game. Brisly Estime is good to go. Meanwhile, Prince-Tyson Gulley, Jarrod West, Beckett Wales, Julian Whigham & Isaiah Johnson are all out.

SU will be wearing the old school Block S helmet along with the blue jersey and orange pants. Just as they should.

We made some predictions about the game. Most of them aren't pretty.

Leave your pre-, in- and post-game comments below. And for what I hope isn't the final time this football season...

G'ORANGE!
