Wednesday, December 30th
New York
The New Yankee stadium will host its first bowl game when the Kansas State Wildcats take on the Syracuse Orangemen. The latest college football odds for this bowl game have the Wildcats listed as slight one point favorites with the total set at 47.5.

Head coach Doug Marrone has resurrected the Syracuse football program and has this team playing in its first bowl game since 2004. It gets even better for the Orange when they heard they would be playing in Yankee stadium, essentially making this a home game. Syracuse has a winning history of bowl games posting a 12-9-1 record but lost badly in the last outing in 2004 against Georgia Tech. With a completely different team and winning attitude the Orangemen are ready to bring a home a victory in the Bronx.

71 year old Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder is glad to have the Wildcats back in a bowl game. They too have been away from the college football post season for a while making their last appearance in 2006. They have a run first offense led by senior tailback Daniel Thomas who tore up the Big 12 rushing the ball.

Thomas is second in the Big 12 with 1,495 rushing yards and tied for the conference lead with 16 touchdowns. He can control the offense and run past any defense if he is not properly accounted for. The Wildcats need to run the ball well because passing will be tough against the Syracuse defense.

Syracuse has a dominating pass defense and leads the Big East with 157.6 yards allowed per game. They have been vulnerable to the run in many of their losses this year and will have to shore up the run defense if they hope to beat the Cats.

The Wildcats are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 non-conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 bowl games and against the Big East.

The Orange are 6-2 ATS in their last eight non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in the last six games after a loss.

Syracuse is a tough team this year and vastly improved. The home field advantage will be too much to overcome.
