2-0 Peach Bowl (Unless some mass losses start occurring in the top 10 and we get in the playoff)
1-1 Probably Pinstripe (Outside chance of Camping Word Bowl)
0-2 Pinstripe Bowl

I understand that it's ideal to play in warm weather, and that the Pinstripe bowl doesn't provide that, but it's a Tier 1 bowl this year. When people hear "Pinstripe Bowl" they tend to think we got a crap bowl. It isn't the same lower tier bowl as it was when we played in it twice.

2-0 Peach
1-1 Camping World
0-2 Pinstripe

I do think an 8-9 win Syracuse would get a good look from the Sun Bowl. Sun Bowl had NC St last year so won’t take them, so either BC or SU goes there imo. If BC wins out or loses out I think we become their top choice. Pinstripe could take Pitt as a regional draw for fans instead of SU.

Pinstripe is quality for sure. I know one projection had Penn St but they just won and will get picked in a higher level bowl. I think Wisconsin is going to Pinstripe. Getting a program like Wisconsin shows the Pinstripe is a pretty decent bowl.

ADJW said himself that if we win out, we likely get Peach.

If we win 1 more we likely get Camping World. To explain, from what I can tell Camping World will choose the highest ranked ACC team available. NC State losing makes it nearly impossible for them to jump us with one more win. So its likely, SU or BC. Since BC is going to lose tonight to Clemson, they will drop as well. So with all that said, if SU beats ND, I don't think BC can jump us, even if they beat us the last week. If we lose to ND and beat BC, then we obviously will be ranked higher than them. Even Camping World predicts us to go there and expects us to lose to ND.

If we lose both, I don't even want to think much on that, but it's likely Pinstripe unless Sunbowl, Gator, or Music City really wants us. NC State looks primed for the Belk.

Some weird factors may change things, such as Clemson losing (yeah right) or ND losing twice, or both losing once, which I don't see that happening either.

So for now, this is the way I see it, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Let's just make it easy, and win the whole damn thing.

Pinstripe with a 9-3 record would be really whacked and disappointing yea, we haven't made a bowl , but we are past that. The kids will be over the Yankee stadium thing after r saturday and at 9-3 the kids deserve a teml > 50 degrees when they get off the plane.

I agree that Pinstripe would be disappointing, but I’m just looking at the reality of it. If we end up getting into the Peach, Camping World, Belk or Music City, the fan base needs to step up and buy the entire allotment. That will help with future bowl bids.

Just FYI: if Cuse gets the Camping World Bowl. There are nonstop flights from Upstate to Orlando (MCO + SFB), Tampa-St Pete (TPA + PIE) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL). All are a couple hours from the game. The first thing you have to get is air travel (if flying) then work your motel and car. The tickets are the last thing to worry about as SU will have plenty to sell. It would not surprise me is Allegiant or Frontier add extra flights out of Syracuse. Gator Bowl is basically the same airports but add Jacksonville (JAX), Atlanta (ATL) and delete FLL.

If Cuse gets the Sun Bowl it is trickier. I'd look at El Paso (ELP) first but if you plan to do some sightseeing and will rent a car I would extend my airport search out to Albuquerque (ABQ), Phoenix (PHX + AZA), Tuscon (TUS), Dallas (DFW + DAL), Austin (AUS) and San Antonio (SAT).

Literally you need to line up your commitments for each likely scenario before the announcement then execute. Problem I've had before is folks that can't pull the trigger for 24-48 hrs and then they say no...get the commitments first.

Possibly West Palm Beach airport. Flights from Albany to WPB - not sure about rest of upstate. About 40 minutes closer than FLL (as you know).

Good catch...thought about WPB too. Great option for the Capital District fans.

Extra bowl payout aside I’d rather play a B12 or Big10 team in Camping World or Pinstripe than UCF in the Peach. I want a P5 opponent in a bowl.

Bowl payouts do not matter...the ACC puts it all in a pot. The difference is Cuse's bowl location attractive enough to guarantee we purchase half the required allotment? (The ACC covers the other 50% as necessary)

People complaining about not having enough northeast games when we join the ACC and now want no part of the Pinstripe Bowl. I get the reasons why - just kinda funny to me.
