Syracuse - 21
Minnesota - 17
The game didn't start off pretty, but three touchdowns in the fourth quarter made the Texas Bowl one of the most exciting games yet. In the end, Terrel Hunt played his tail off and led Syracuse to the win. The sophomore quarterback, who was named MVP of the game, passed for 188 yards, while rushing for 91 yards and two scores.
This win is Syracuse's second straight bowl victory and third in four years. Meanwhile, Minnesota has lost two straight bowl games and is still searching for its first bowl win since 2004.
