As the Syracuse Orange prepare to kick off the 2011 college football season, it's time to get dangerously way-ahead of ourselves and wonder...what bowl will the Orange end up in?

There's a whole bunch of bowl projections out there and while it seems as though few people can agree on where the Orange will end up, almost all of them agree SU should end up in a bowl game for the second-straight season. We've come a long way from The Quest For Toronto.
