The Syracuse Orange (4-5, 2-3 ACC) lost to #2 Clemson  (9-0,6-0 ACC) Saturday, but that might not have been their worst loss of the day.

Syracuse starting quarterback Eric Dungey exited taking a hit early in the first quarter already having thrown one interception. Down by 10, the Orange could no longer stay competitive with one of the top teams in College Football. Dino Babers, as he has in the past, chose not to comment on Dungey's injury.

It’s easy for a young team to take a team without a conference win lightly, especially after a landmark win against a top 25 school. Some would call Saturday’s matchup against Boston College (3-4, 0-4 ACC) a trap game.

The Syracuse Orange (4-4, 2-2 ACC) put up over 500 yards of total offense, turned the ball over three times, and committed sixteen penalties on Saturday against the Eagles. Okay, that’s typical. Sounds like most weeks. The difference this week? The defense stepped up. The only trap today was the one that BC tried to throw into all day, the Syracuse secondary.

The Orange started out strong with a six play, 75-yard drive capped off by an Eric Dungey touchdown pass to Ervin Phillips. Dungey, who was injured in the second quarter but came back in, was fantastic all day. He threw for over 400 yards and had a rushing touchdown as well.
