Orange fans pack Syracuse bars for Texas Bowl

Orange fans packed the Saltine Warrior Friday night to watch Syracuse defeat the Golden Gophers in Houston.

After punching their ticket to bowl eligibility in late, come-from-behind fashion in their last game of the regular season, the Orange displayed the same grit and perseverance in the final minutes of the Texas Bowl to overcome Minnesota.

Back in Syracuse, fans were encouraged by the signs they saw in tonight's victory and are hopeful for the future of Syracuse football.
