Blizzard beat Wildcats in Fantasy Bowl IX

The Syracuse Blizzard enjoyed a huge 25-point performance from QB Dante Culpepper and a 15-point performance from K Ryan Longwell en route to a 62-47 win over the Boston Wildcats to capture the 2000 Fantasy Bowl championship.

The third time was the charm for this franchise, who made 2 previous trips to the Fantasy Bowl — both losses. In Fantasy Bowl I, the then-Butler Blowfish lost 47-40 to the State College Bandits. In Fantasy Bowl VI, Syracuse lost to the (then-Pennsylvania) Wildcats 49-20.

It’s the second consecutive Fantasy Bowl loss for Boston, who were beaten 87-71 by the Griffins in Fantasy Bowl VIII.
