Orange OC says walk-on Mahoney is 'the guy'

Syracuse will play arguably the toughest game on its schedule this Saturday when it hosts No. 8 LSU and will look to a walk-on, junior college transfer to lead it to victory. On Wednesday, Orange offensive coordinator Tim Lester announced that Zach Mahoney will get the starting nod when Syracuse (3-0, 0-0 ACC) hosts the No. 8 Tigers (2-0, 0-0 SEC) at 3:30 p.m. "Right now Zack is...

Ever since Terrel Hunt threw the punch that ejected him from Friday’s win over Villanova, there has been chatter of him possibly getting benched for Austin Wilson (including here on the Fizz).

Fizz 5: Syracuse QB Austin Wilson Should Get First Team Reps

We’ve heard it all on the Hill the last few days. A win’s a win. It wasn’t pretty but they got it done. But this was Syracuse against FCS opponent Villanova. The Orange barely snuck out with a 27-26 win at the Dome.
