Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib is rewriting the school record book in his final season, mainly because he has the luxury of throwing to a talented group of wide receivers and has the blockers up front to give him the time. In his final year with the Orange, Nassib has shattered his single-season record of 2,685 yards passing set last year - he's at 3,404, 14th nationally - and he's spread the ball around: Alec Lemon (65 catches), Marcus Sales (60), Jarrod West (39), Beckett Wales (31), Chris Clark (10), and tailback Prince-Tyson Gulley (25) top the list. After sitting out the season opener against Northwestern because of an injured hamstring, Lemon started slowly. But he has come on like gangbusters in the last five games with 41 catches for 727 yards. The Orange (6-5) won four of those games to qualify for the postseason for the second time in three years.
