The Syracuse Orange Football Team will face the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Thursday afternoon in the Bad Boy Mowers Pinstripe Bowl.
Syracuse quarterback Garrett Schrader said the team has been focused on getting into bowl games since the start of the season. I stumbled on a losing streak.
“We feel we are falling short in terms of what we can do,” said Schroeder. “It was graphically tough to get out there and win a football game there for a little while. We bent, but we didn’t break.”
At a recent press conference, Orange head coach Dino Babars said his team earned the right to play in the bowl game, and now the important thing is to represent the college the right way.
“I understand it’s difficult,” Babers said. “I understand that some players are not playing, some are playing on the other side, but the great thing about football is that once the ball is kicked off, it doesn’t matter. is.”
Several Orange players have opted out of the game, been injured or transferred. Babers said the bowl game usually means the end of the season, but he sees it as the start. I said I was looking at it.
“Players on the football field are the first opportunity for many to shine. I’m excited to see what the young players are going to do. They will make some mistakes. But if they get to full speed and progress and get better as the game goes on, that will be exciting for our future.”
Syracuse are making their first bowl appearance since 2018 and are 27th overall with a record of 16-9-1.
Kickoff is at 2:00 p.m. and will air on ESPN.
