Snow and scoring in the forecast when West Virginia and Syracuse meet in Pinstripe Bowl

The forecast for the Pinstripe Bowl calls for snow and scoring.

West Virginia and Syracuse play Saturday at Yankee Stadium in a matchup of former Big East rivals and NFL prospect quarterbacks.

Snow is expected to fall in the New York area throughout the day, with accumulations of about 3 inches. Maybe that will help the defenses slow down a couple of offenses that have been among the best in the country this season.

Geno Smith and the Mountaineers are eighth in the nation in total offense at 518 yards a game. Ryan Nassib and the Orange are 21st at 473.

West Virginia (7-5) has scored at least 31 points 10 times this season. Syracuse (7-5) averaged 36 points a game while winning five of its last six.
