SYRACUSE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Failure Up Front: Syracuse Defensive Front Four is a Problem After Nova

Syracuse’s defense prided itself last season on not allowing a single 100-yard rusher. Friday night, Villanova’s quarterback John Robertson made sure the 2014 Orange would not continue the trend. He finished with 115 yards on 34 carries. SU’s front four had no answer for the Wildcats elusive QB. The majority of talk following this game surrounded Terrel Hunt’s ejection...

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. A missed field goal and failed execution by the Wildcats in OT helped SU pull this one out. Scott Shafer doesn’t need to panic, and sometimes there are multiple...

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...

Because an Orange-Out is so passe
