Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: Do you see Syracuse making a bowl game?

Andrea Adelson: I think it’s going to be really tough this year because you add in Notre Dame. That’s a team that’s going to be in the top 15 this year and people have high expectations for. North Carolina should be a game that this team wins. But when you look at the bulk of that Atlantic Division and how difficult those games are going to be… Pitt is going to be an improved team this year. They’re a team that’s figured things out at quarterback. That’s one of those games that you have circled that’s a must win for this team to get to six. It’s game against Pitt, Boston College, Wake Forest, NC State and those non-conference games to pull it off. Right now, I’m putting that Pittsburgh game in the Pitt column, so that’s why I feel like Syracuse is going to fall one game short of getting to a bowl game this year.
