Syracuse Falls to Maryland, 34-20, in Mistake Filled Performance

Syracuse warms up before taking on the Maryland Terrapins.

Terrel Hunt’s two turnovers – a red zone interception and a late fumble – turned into ten Maryland Terrapin points. Syracuse accumulated 589 yards of offense, but a series of blunders - penalties, dropped interceptions and errant throws - prevented the Orange from going 3-0 for the first time in 23 years.

The Orange (2-1) lost 34-20 in an underwhelming home performance on Saturday.
