Texas Bowl: Syracuse Orange vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers

Philip Nelson of the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

Minnesota is possibly the surprise of the season in college football. They not only had a winning record and became bowl eligible, but also held their own in the Big 10, none of which was expected of them. Syracuse didn't fare quite as well, but didn't do too bad considering this was their first season in the ACC, a much tougher football conference than the old Big East. On paper the Gophers had better wins, play better offense, and slightly better defense, so they should have the advantage. It should be a good game though, and not completely surprising if Syracuse comes out on top either.
