Early Friday evening, the 6-6 Syracuse Orange of the ACC will take on the 8-4 Minnesota Golden Gophers of the Big Ten in the 2013 Texas Bowl.

All things considered, this bowl appearance for the Orange could be considered a huge success in their first season as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. That had their up moments and they had their down moments, but when it was all said and done, they had the six wins necessary to play one more game during the holiday season.

Minnesota was the surprise of the Big Ten Conference in 2013. Playing with the emotion of having to be without their head coach, Jerry Kill who had to take some time off to deal with epileptic seizures, the Gophers captured themselves some big wins in 2013 in one of the tougher conferences in the nation.

Here’s how you can watch these two battle it out in the Texas Bowl on Friday:

Date: Dec. 27

Start Time: 6 PM ET

Location: Houston, TX

Stadium: Reliant Stadium

TV Info: ESPN
