Syracuse, NY - Syracuse (0-2) welcomes Wagner (1-1) to the Carrier Dome Saturday. The orange is still searching for its first win of the season and of the Scott Shafer era.

On Thursday morning, the Syracuse University Board of Trustees announced that the search for Syracuse University's 12th Chancellor and President had come to a close. Kent Syverud is currently Dean of the School of Law at Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri.
In a Q & A session with reporters, Syverud thanked members of the community and spoke about how excited he was to be returning to the Syracuse area for his new role.
