Sports History of the Pinstripe Bowl Updated December 28, 2016 5:51 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email The New Era Pinstripe Bowl has been held every year at Yankee Stadium since 2010. Here is a year-by-year look at each game. DEC. 30, 2010: Syracuse 36, Kansas State 34 Photo Credit: Getty Images Ryan Nassib threw for 239 yards and three touchdowns, Delone Carter had 27 carries for 198 yards and two scores, and Marcus Sales had 172 receiving yards and three touchdowns on five catches as Syracuse won the first Pinstripe Bowl over Kansas State, 36-34, in front of 38,274 fans. However, the first iteration of the Pinstripe Bowl went down in history because of a call that went against Kansas State. Adrian Hilburn scored a 30-yard touchdown catch with 1:13 remaining, which pulled the Wildcats to within two. Hilburn saluted the crowd behind the visitor's dugout to celebrate, and the refs called a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that pushed back the two-point conversion attempt to the 17-yard line. The conversion was unsuccessful, and Syracuse recovered the onside kick. As a result of the call, the NCAA revised its unsportsmanlike conduct rule to penalize only taunting rather than all celebrations. DEC. 30, 2011: Rutgers 27, Iowa State 13 Photo Credit: Getty Images Freshman running back Jawan Jamison had 27 carries for 131 yards and two touchdowns and freshman wide receiver Brandon Coleman had an 86-yard touchdown catch as Rutgers beat Iowa State, 27-13, in the 2011 Pinstripe Bowl in front of 38,328 fans. Scarlet Knights quarterback Chas Dodd threw for 176 yards and a touchdown on 10-of-17 passing. Jeff Woody scored on a 20-yard run in the fourth quarter for Iowa State's only touchdown. DEC. 29, 2012: Syracuse 38, West Virginia 14 Photo Credit: Errol Anderson Snow couldn't slow down Syracuse. Prince Tyson-Gulley had 213 rushing yards and two touchdowns and Jerome Smith added 152 rushing yards as the Orange beat West Virginia in the 2012 Pinstripe Bowl, 38-14, in front of 39,098 bundled-up fans. Interestingly, the two starting quarterbacks in this game would go on to be drafted by New York pro football teams more than four months later. Future Giants backup quarterback Ryan Nassib went 11-of-23 for 130 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, while future Jets signal-caller Geno Smith completed 19 of 28 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns (both of which went to wide receiver Stedman Bailey). DEC. 28, 2013: Notre Dame 29, Rutgers 16 Photo Credit: Getty Images / Jeff Zelevansky Tommy Rees threw for 319 yards and running backs Tarean Folston and TJ Jones each ran for a touchdown as No. 20 Notre Dame beat Rutgers, 29-16, in the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl with 47,122 fans in attendance. Kyle Brindza converted five of six field goal opportunities, including a late 49-yarder, and the Fighting Irish defense recorded four interceptions -- three on Scarlet Knights quarterbacks Chas Dodd and one on freshman running back Justin Goodwin on a trick play attempt. Offensive lineman Zack Martin earned game MVP honors. Dec. 27, 2014: Penn State 31, Boston College 30 (OT) Photo Credit: Andrew Theodorakis Penn State overcame a 21-7 third-quarter deficit to tie and a three-point deficit in the final 2:10 to force overtime on Sam Ficken’s 44-yard field goal with 20 seconds left. After Boston College kicker Alex Howell missed an extra point in overtime, Nittany Lions sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg hit tight end Kyle Carter with a tying 10-yard TD pass before Ficken -- who was given Derek Jeter's old locker as a team captain -- added the winning extra point in a 31-30 Penn State victory. Dec. 26, 2015: Duke 44, Indiana 41 (OT) Photo Credit: Errol Anderson In a game between two schools better known for their basketball programs, Duke outlasted Indiana in overtime to win its first bowl game since the 1961 Cotton Bowl. Duke quarterback Thomas Sirk sent the game to overtime with a 5-yard touchdown run with 41 seconds left. Duke's Ross Martin hit a 36-yard field goal in overtime to put Duke on top. Indiana had a chance to tie it, but Griffin Oakes' potential game-tying field goal missed wide right. Dec. 28, 2016: Northwestern 31, Pittsburgh 24 Photo Credit: Errol Anderson In a game that went back-and-forth for all four quarters, the Northwestern Wildcats outlasted the Pittsburgh Panthers for the win. With just over eight minutes remaining, Northwestern's Clayton Thorson connected with Garrett Dickerson on 4th down for a 21-yard touchdown that gave the Wildcats the lead for good. Junior running back Justin Jackson led the Northwestern offensive attack, carrying the ball 32 times for 224 yards and three touchdowns.
