Game day is here! The No. 17 Syracuse Orange (9-3, 6-2) take on the No. 15 West Virginia Mountaineers (8-3, 6-3) in the Camping World Bowl at 5:15 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN. Or if you’re in Orlando, you’ll be witnessing kickoff in-person with thousands of Orange faithful, plus hundreds of local underprivileged kids as part of #CuseTixForKids.
Syracuse started out as a 7.5-point underdog, but that line’s since drifted to considering the Orange a three-point favorite. Someone has so much confidence in SU winning that they put $44,000 on the line to prove it.
