Turtle Soup: Why Syracuse Can Exploit Maryland’s Soft Defense

Surprise! Here’s the Eye-Opening Facts on Syracuse’s Domination

Using a well-balanced attack of power running and quarterback accuracy and power, the Orange surprised many with a dominating effort on the road.

Wake Up! Syracuse Needs Answers From Its Backfield

Courtesy: There has been a lot of questions asked about the Syracuse running backs. Who would step up as the second guy behind Prince Tyson Gulley? Could Adonis Ameen-Moore make an impact after getting virtually no playing time last year? We needs more answers, but look to this weekend for even more separation.

Fizz 5: The Keys to a Syracuse Win Over Central Michigan

After Syracuse barely knocked off Villanova, the Orange try to make it two straight wins, but hopefully this one in better fashion. Two major things went wrong in the Villanova game. The defense was far less effective than last year. And Terrel Hunt used his fists (which never serves a point in football). But there’s more to it. A program that has won three bowl games in four...

WATCH: Syracuse runs a fake FG to win the game

On fourth down, with your team tied 20-20 in the second overtime, you should probably kick the field goal to take the 23-20 lead, right? WRONG. Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer called one of the gutsiest play calls of the early college football season. Instead of taking the easy three points, Shafer called in a fake field goal and punter Riley Dixon threw a touchdown pass to tight...
