Friday, December 28th brings you the 28th annual Camping World Bowl, featuring the West Virginia Mountaineers taking on the Syracuse Orange live from the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
West Virginia lost their regular season finale to eventual College Playoff invitee Oklahoma 59-56, and Syracuse doubled up on Boston College 42-21 in their final regular season game. Both of these teams can put up some points, so this should be a fun one to watch.
#16 West Virginia Mountaineers
With losses to Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, by a combined 23 points, and a couple or quality wins over Kansas and Texas, you can see why this Mountaineers team is still ranked as high as they are with three losses on the year. Syracuse will be a tough opponent for sure, but nothing like West Virginia has already plowed through in 2018.
The Mountaineers averaged a whopping 520 total yard per contest this season, en route to scoring an average of 42.3 points per game. But that is typical for a Big 12 school these days. Defense was a bright spot for West Virginia, averaging 26.5 points against despite giving up a total of 405.5 yards per game to their opponents.
In their last game against Oklahoma, the Mountaineers collected an incredible 704 total yards, with 539 of those coming through the air. During the season they averaged 358.1 passing yards per game, and I doubt they will be changing their game plan for this bowl game.
#20 Syracuse Orange
Syracuse had the dubious task of having to go up against the #2 and #3 teams in the final polls this year, losing both of course, but to go the rest of the way with only one loss is a pretty good record. They fought their little hearts out against Clemson before finally dropping the game by four points back on September 29th.
The Orange too were a team that like to air it out this year. Averaging over 260 yards per game through the air, and 471.8 total yards per game on the way to scoring an average of 40.8 points per game. Defensively they gave up a solid 27.8 points per game, which surely will be tested come December 28th.
Against BC, the Orange tallied 559 total yards, with 362 of those coming through the air. They added an impressive 197 yards on the ground on 58 carries for an average of 3.4 yards per. I think getting their ground game going early will be the decision maker for Syracuse in this game.

This has the looks of a shootout right from the opening kickoff, at least on paper. You know that the coaching staff of each team will be looking to get their respective teams an edge defensively against two very potent offenses. Should be fun to watch, that’s for sure.
