Syracuse football bowl watch: Orange just one win away

The Syracuse Orange are headed into their bye week at 5-4, a mark that has traditionally led to six wins. With the off time to get healthy, the Orange are eying at least one W on the road against Louisville or NC State, or knocking off Pittsburgh on Senior Day at the Carrier Dome. ESPN Bill C updates SP+ each week, which also updates the projected win totals. (SP+ projected Syracuse for between three and four wins at the beginning of the season.) Last week, the Orange had a 50% chance of reaching six wins for the first time since they started 3-1 earlier in the season. Going into this week bye week, the Orange have a 72% chance of finishing with six wins (SP+ has the projection at 6 Airon Servais Jersey.0, as close as you can get) which has certainly buoyed hope in the Orange, and that has translated to projections for the first time this year! Big Game Boomer: Fenway Bowl, Boston, MA, December 29USA Today, Yahoo Sports: New Era Pinstripe Bowl Mike Midkiff Jersey, New York, NY, December 29ESPN, ravaged by the post pandemic fallout, it seems as if Northern bowl committees are looking for a safer draw. The Orange have a long history in the Pinstripe Bowl, and the alumni base in the area will almost assuredly move tickets should the Orange be selected The Fenway Bowl is similar, but to a lesser extent, so both of these bowls are natural landing places. The Military Bowl is always an interesting name that gets thrown around, but rarely seems to favor the Orange, preferring for closer Tobacco Road ACC competition. (UNC, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Wake Forest are the last four selections from the conference for the game.) With the ACC as it is at the moment, there a good chance most of those teams do not qualify or are higher in the pecking order, so Syracuse becomes a pick that delivers a metro area alumni base and a potential natural rivalry with Army, should they be selected. No matter what, the Orange still have two games left against College Playoff ranked opposition, a tricky Louisville that will be honoring a player who tormented the Orange that day. Six wins are all but guaranteed, but there belief outside of Central New York that it will happen.  Syracuse Football  New Mexico State RB Juwaun Price announces transfer to Syracuse  Syracuse football recruiting: What left for 2022?  TNIAAL: Big East nostalgia bites back  Report: SU targeting UVA Robert Anae, Jason Beck as hires  Syracuse football: Mikel Jones announces return for 2022  Early signing period roundtable: What do we think of SU 2022 class?
