Syracuse football bowl watch: THE BAD BOY MOWER IS ALMOST READY

We nearly have enough gas to ride this thing to the moon!

Quest for Gasparilla Bowl Andy Pregler

If you’re not feeling the buzz, I don’t know what to tell you. The Syracuse Orange are just one win away from being bowl eligible after their dramatic win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. ‘Cuse hasn’t yet been in this position in the Dino Babers era, and people are getting excited, even outside of CNY. To the Crystal Bad Boy Mower!

Pinstripe Bowls

ESPN’s Mitch Sherman: Pinstripe Bowl vs. Maryland Terrapins | New York, NY

ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura: Pinstripe Bowl vs. Michigan State Spartans | New York, NY

SB Nation: Pinstripe Bowl vs. Northwestern Wildcats | New York, NY

The Pinstripe Bowl doesn’t sound all that exciting if you’re just looking at the “where are we going” question, versus the fact that we’re going to any bowl. But three different opponents seem interesting, no? Beating Michigan State in the postseason for a second time this year (hi, basketball!) would be fairly rewarding. Don’t want to see Maryland, though, since we face them early in 2019.

Military Bowls

CBS Sports: Military Bowl vs. Temple Owls | Annapolis, MD

247 Sports: Military Bowl vs. Cincinnati Bearcats | Annapolis, MD

Right now, this seems like the fate of the Orange until Bowl Selection Day. The Orange are perfect fodder for New York or Annapolis based bowls looking to fill stadiums. Even though I’d love for ‘Cuse to end up in a warmer bowl location like Nashville or Tampa Bay, Annapolis is still a cool place and it’s not like New York is boring.

Quick Lane Bowls

Sports Illustrated: Quick Lane Bowl vs. Toledo Rockets | Detroit, Mich.

Sporting News: Quick Lane Bowl vs. Toledo Rockets | Detroit, Mich.

Which of these three would you prefer? Military, Pinstripe or Quick Lane?
