Syracuse football (3-4, 1-2) hosts Wake Forest (4-4, 2-3) this Saturday. The last time the Orange was in action SU “got (its) rumps kicked” in the words of head Coach Scott Shafer following the beat down in Atlanta.

The Orange looks to rebound from that horrible 56-0 loss against Georgia Tech with a win against Wake Forest at home. SU gave up nearly 400 yards on the ground alone against the Yellow Jackets, but the run defense is not the only worry against the Demon Deacons.

Clemson made sure Syracuse never had control of the game. After three plays and just 38 seconds, the #3-ranked Tigers led Syracuse 7-0 and Heisman candidate Tajh Boyd was 3-3 with 82 yards and a touchdown.

“When they scored fast, we were like ‘Whoa.’,” said Syracuse cornerback Julian Whigham. “They’re as good as we thought they were.”

Clemson (5-0, 3-0 ACC) continued to dominate Syracuse (2-3, 0-1 ACC) and won 49-14. Boyd threw touchdown passes of 60, 42, and 91 yards to pace the Tigers past the Orange.

Syracuse (1-2) throttled Wagner 54-0 in the Dome Opener on Saturday. It’s the first win of the Scott Shafer era, but he wasn’t focused on that.

“I didn’t think about my first win too much until they dumped the Gatorade on me,” Shafer said, with a chuckle. “But it feels great.”

The big story of the day revolved around, what else, the quarterbacks. Senior transfer Drew Allen started the game, but was yanked after he mustered just three points on three drives.
