Oh my gosh, you guys. It's here! The Texas Bowl! And the Syracuse Orange will play the Minnesota Golden Gophers to find out who is the greatest team in all of Houston. Just like we drew it up back in September.

The game will be televised on ESPN at 6 p.m. EST. If you want to watch the game with fellow Orange fans, they're hanging out at a place near you.

Keep an eye out for the #CuseTixForKids kids. They should be sitting in Sections 134-136, next to the SU Marching Band. They might also be some across the field behind the other endzone.

Get your fill on pre-game discussions here and predictions here.

In Houston? Here's some good ideas on where to celebrate.

Please note, we're breaking it up into two GameThreads, one for each half. So keep an eye out for the 2nd half thread after halftime.

Otherwise, put on your orange, grab a giant foam finger and get ready to cheer on SU to victory.

Leave your pre- and in-game comments below.

G'ORANGE!
