Syracuse head coach Dino Babers designed the Orange’s new, revamped offense to win games just like this one. They didn’t.
The Syracuse Orange (2-3) were defeated by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2-3) by a score of 50-27 Saturday in a game of big plays.
The game was very competitive in the first half, where the two teams combined for 727 yards of total offense, including 437 in the first quarter alone. This was to be expected as Syracuse’s defensive woes this season are well documented and Notre Dame fired their defensive coordinator days before the game Saturday.
