What are the best games in Pinstripe Bowl history?
It’s a very short history, with only three games under its belt, but the first Pinstripe Bowl in 2010 was an instant classic. It wasn’t without controversy however, as Kansas State score a touchdown with only 1:13 left in the game to bring it to 36-34. Adrian Hilburn did a military hand salute after scoring and was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. The penalty backed up the 2-point conversion to the 17-yard line, which was unsuccessful.

The victorious school gets to take home the George M. Steinbrenner Trophy, named after the former owner of the New York Yankees. Each school also takes home a $1.8 million payout for participating, the third-highest amount for a bowl game before New Year’s Day.
