D.A. (6-6, 3-4 in Big East)
There are three certainties on the SU schedule. Win over Stony Brook, losses to USC and Mizzou. Everything else is a toss up for the Orange, and the coin will flip 5-4 in SU’s favor over the other nine contests. The Orange will find a way to win a close one tomorrow against Northwestern, and win by ten on the road at Minnesota. That means SU needs to dig up just three wins in conference to become bowl eligible. The Orange will knock off Pitt at home with more Friday night Dome magic, return the favor on Coach P vs. UConn, and down Cincinnati. Temple will get an upset win over the Orange, the low point in the season. But it’s enough to go bowling. Pack your bags for Tampa, we’re headed to the Beef O’ Brady’s Bowl.
