The Syracuse Orange (5-6, 1-5 Big East) and Pittsburgh Panthers (5-6, 3-3) face off Saturday afternoon at Heinz Field with bowl eligibility on the line. The winner of the game will most likely play December 20 in the Beef O'Brady's Bowl. The loser goes home one win shy of a bowl game.
Syracuse started the season 5-2, but have lost four straight games, as the offense has fallen apart and the defense has given up huge chunks of yards and points in the past month.
Pittsburgh has lost four of six games, the last being a 21-20 heartbreaker to West Virginia in the Backyard Brawl.
