      Pinstripe Bowl Forecast: snow and scoring for Syracuse and West Virginia

      NEW YORK (AP) - The forecast for the Pinstripe Bowl calls for snow and scoring.

      West Virginia and Syracuse play Saturday at Yankee Stadium in a matchup of former Big East rivals and NFL prospect quarterbacks.

      Snow is expected to fall in the New York area throughout the day, with accumulations of about 3 inches. Maybe that will help the defenses slow down a couple of offenses that have been among the best in the country this season.

      Geno Smith and the Mountaineers are eighth in the nation in total offense at 518 yards a game. Ryan Nassib and the Orange are 21st at 473.

      West Virginia (7-5) has scored at least 31 points 10 times this season. Syracuse (7-5) averaged 36 points a game while winning five of its last six.
