SU awaits bowl fate, announcement could be late tonight

With six wins on the season in a very competitive ACC, the Syracuse Orange Football team met or exceeded many peopleâ??s expectations. The Orange are technically bowl eligible with their 6-6 record, but in spite of the sheer number of bowls out there, being eligible does not guarantee a bowl invite.

The Orange appeared to be in a tight spot, as their bowl hopes dwindled with each team selected ahead of them for bowl spots. Right now, the Orange is still in the mix for the Little Caesarâ??s Pizza Bowl, the Heart of Dallas Bowl and the Texas Bowl.

As of this writing, the Little Caesarâ??s Pizza Bowl and the Texas Bowl said they plan to announce their selections at about 8:45. The other potential landing spot for the Orange, the Heart of Dallas Bowl, has not said when they will announce. While these are not the only bowl possibilities for the Orange, they have been projected as the top possibilites for Syracuse.
