History: Pinstripe Bowl

When the Pinstripe Bowl debuted at Yankee Stadium in 2010, it became the first bowl in the New York area since the Garden State Bowl at Giants Stadium in 1981 and the first within the five boroughs since Miami and Nebraska met in the final Gotham Bowl in 1962 at the original Yankee Stadium.

The game is sponsored by the New York Yankees, the only bowl game with formal sponsorship from a Major League Baseball team. When

The game currently is a battle between teams in the AAC and the Big 12. Beginning in 2014, the game will feature a team from the Big Ten and a team from the Big 12.

Memorable moments

• In the inaugural game in 2010, Kansas State's Adrian Hilburn scored a touchdown with 1:13 left, and then made a military hand salute to the crowd. Hilburn was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. The 15-yard penalty cause Kansas State to try a 2-point conversion from the 17-yard line. It failed and Syracuse won 36-34. The next season, the NCAA changed the celebration rule to penalize not celebrations, but taunting.

• The 2012 game was played in constant snow. Syracuse beat West Virginia 28-15.
