  • Prince-Tyson Gulley's 208 yards on the ground were eight yards short of the Syracuse record for most rushing yards in a bowl game. Floyd Little ran for 216 yards in the 1966 Gator Bowl.

  • To say that Prince-Tyson Gulley had the best game of his life in the Pinstripe Bowl vs West Virginia would be an understatement. Tyson-Gulley set numerous career-highs en route to leading Syracuse to their second Pinstripe Bowl victory, including rushing for 208 yards when he had previously never rushed for 100 in a single game in his career.

  • Both Prince-Tyson Gulley and Jerome Smith rushed for over 100 yards in Saturday's Pinstripe Bowl win over West Virginia.It's the 1st time the Orange have had multiple 100-yard rushers in the same game since Sept. 20, 2008 against Northeastern when Curtis Brinkley and Doug Hogue both did it.

  • A year after putting up 589 yards and a bowl-record 70 points in the Orange Bowl, West Virginia was held to 14 points on half as many yards by Syracuse in the Pinstripe Bowl.

  • The last time two safeties were recorded in a bowl game was in the Gator Bowl on January 1, 2008. Texas Tech QB Graham Harrell was twice called for intentional grounding in the endzone against Virginia. The Red Raiders still won, 31-28.

  • The Mountaineers finally got on the board with 3:38 left in the 2nd quarter, but their offense in this season's Pinstripe Bowl pales in comparison to what they had at halftime against Clemson in last season's Orange Bowl.
