Just like that, the Bad Boy Mower has a tank that’s 1⁄3 of the way filled for the biggest, baddest, most pirate-y bowl this side of Pittsburgh! The most recent Syracuse Orange win has them at 2-0 headed into Saturday’s high noon showdown with Florida State.
A win Saturday would get plenty of attention, but where do the great and powerful bowl prognosticates think we’ll end up? If the headline didn’t give it away, some people think we could be making two trips to the Bronx this year!

For the first time, we get some new blood in the projections with a potential Shreveport, La. trip on the table. But really, a Pinstripe Bowl versus Mark Coyle, boat rowing and a giant gopher sounds right up TNIAAM’s alley, especially after how things went the last time we faced Minnesota in the postseason.
This weekend’s game will lead us down one of two major paths on our Quest: Win and the Orange have found three Gasparilla Stones in the first 20 minutes of the movie. Lose? We’re on the plotted course we set out upon at the beginning of the year, but can’t help feel like we missed an opportunity.
