Syracuse didn’t need any overtimes or trick plays to beat Central Michigan on Saturday. Just good defense.
Two weeks after narrowly beating Villanova, the Orange (2-0) easily defeated the Chippewas, 40-3, on Saturday at Kelly/Shorts Stadium.
"I really challenged the defense to play well in stopping the run," Scott Shafer said. "Coach (Chuck) Bullough, Coach (Tim) Daoust, Coach (Fred) Reed, and Coach (Clark) Lea did a heck of a job of getting those kids ready to play."
