Underdogs have posted a 7-3 record straight up against the spread in the first ten years of this bowl. Total bettors have seen the 'under' go 6-4 in the first ten installments. The Big Ten has won five of the last six Pinstripe Bowls, and two matchups saw the outcome finish in overtime. In the 2019 edition, Michigan State outscored Wake Forest 7-0 in the second half to capture a 27-21 victory from New York. Bettors on the 'over' certainly weren't happy with the result, as the pair had combined for 41 points in the first 30 minutes.

Like many bowls, the New Era Pinstripe Bowl was wiped out in 2020 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. The game returned on Dec. 29, 2021, and Virginia Tech likely wishes the 2021 game was wiped out, too. Hit by transfer portal defections, several injuries, and opt-outs, a depleted Hokies team with an interim coach was no match for Maryland, losing 54-10 as the favorite and 'over' cashed. It was just the fourth time in 11 Pinstripe Bowl games that the favorite hit.

The inaugural matchup saw Syracuse beat Kansas State 36-34 with the help of a controversial call that changed celebration rules. KSU scored a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to pull within two points. However, when the scoring player saluted the crowd, an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was called. The Wildcats failed on the potential game-tying two-point conversion. The NCAA changed its rules on celebrations the following season.

Northwestern upset No. 23 Pittsburgh in 2016, ending a string of two straight overtime games. Duke edged Indiana 44-41 in the 2015 event after Penn State nipped Boston College 31-30 in 2014. The Eagles missed an extra point in overtime, opening the door for the Nittany Lions to grab the victory.

The string of close games continued in 2017 when Iowa scored a late touchdown to defeat Boston College 27-20. It was the fourth consecutive one-score game and the fifth in the bowl’s eight-game history. The streak was finally broken in 2018 as the Wisconsin Badgers cruised to a 35-3 victory over the Miami Hurricanes, with Wisconsin’s defense dominating from start to finish.

Most All-Time Wins

2 Syracuse 2010, 2012
1 Maryland 2021
1 Wisconsin 2018
1 Iowa 2017
1 Northwestern 2016
1 Duke 2015
1 Penn State 2014
1 Notre Dame 2013
1 Rutgers 2011

Boston College, Syracuse and Rutgers are the teams that have made multiple appearances in the Pinstripe Bowl with the Orange being the only program to notch more than a single win. The ACC and Big Ten affiliations should yield more multi-game winners as the years go by.
