Pinstripe Bowl: Syracuse vs. Minnesota, Dec. 29, 2 p.m., ESPN

This isn’t the warm-weather destination Minnesota fans were hoping for, but a last chance to see RB Mo Ibrahim in a Golden Gophers uniform makes this game worth a look. The Orange nonetheless figure to have more rooters in attendance at Yankee Stadium, where a pitchers’ duel seems likely as Syracuse also relies heavily on the ground game with Sean Tucker, but Minnesota defends the run well.

Cheez-It Bowl: Florida State vs. Oklahoma, Dec. 29, 5:30 p.m., ESPN

This would have been a championship-game caliber matchup 20 – or even 10 – years ago. The Seminoles at least demonstrated some upward trajectory this season despite being out of the ACC hunt by mid-October. The Sooners salvaged something from a disastrous campaign by upending Bedlam rival Oklahoma State, but their leaky defense figures to be in for a long day.

Alamo Bowl: Texas vs. Washington, Dec. 29, 9 p.m., ESPN

We’ll put this at the top of the non-New Year’s Six list, though some of the big-name stars will sit it out, including Texas RB Bijan Robinson. The Longhorns should still be able to move the ball, and the Huskies are more than capable of keeping pace as they hope to finish off a superb bounce-back campaign.
