Syracuse takes home the Texas Bowl Championship in college football with a comeback for the ages beating Minnesota 21-17.  There were so many big plays it would be hard to pinpoint just one.  If you missed any of the action or just want to relive it, click to check out the ACC’s Digital Network highlights.

If you read Uncle Smitty’s preview of the game, you know he rated it a 5-and-a-half Dome Dog game.  He may have needed his stomach pumped before this one was over. ‘Cuse had the early lead before some 2nd half heroics from Minnesota gave them a 17-14 lead.

With less than 2 minutes to go, the heroics began.  Brisly Estime returned a punt 70 yards to set the Orange up inside the 15. I’m not sure that committing a penalty could be considered a good thing, but SU had 3rd and 3 inside the ten when they were called for a 5 yard penalty.  I just felt they were about to run the ball and Minnesota was stacking the line, the penalty put them in more of pass defense and Terrel Hunt busted it up the middle for the game winner.

Hunt was the much deserved MVP of the game, converting a 4th and 9 earlier in the game, accounted for 260+ yards running and passing and scored twice.  The Orange finish the season 7-6.
