Syracuse has learned who it will face in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 30. The Kansas State Wildcats, also 7-5, accepted a bid Thursday night.
It will be the Wildcats, members of the Big 12 Conference, first bowl game since 2006. Syracuse fans have been waiting for two years longer, of course. The Orange has not played in a bowl game since 2004.
The game will be played at Yankee Stadium (Who is in an Empire State of Mind now, Rutgers?) and will begin at 3:37.
I will be there and tweeting during the event. Follow me for updates from Yankee Stadium, Jr.!

I graduated from Syracuse University in 2009 and can count the number of times I witnessed the Orange win a football game on two hands.
