In the midst of what could very well be the ACC’s toughest schedule, Syracuse (4-4, 2-2) enjoyed its highly-anticipated bye this past week. Up next for the Orange is a second trip in the last three weeks down to the Sunshine State, for a bout against Florida State (2-5, 2-4).

Syracuse men’s basketball goes into the upcoming season with games starting this week…and one thing is on everyone’s minds: How will Syracuse fare this year following their disappointing 2016-2017 season. The Orange went from the Final Four in 2016 as the number 10 seed, to not even making it past the second round in the NIT tournament last year.

In the last few years, inconsistency seems to be the recurring theme for the Orange, and once again Coach Jim Boeheim and the Orange will head into this season with something to prove.

Coming off the biggest win the program has seen in 30 years, Syracuse (4-3, 2-1) heads down south for a clash with eighth-ranked Miami (5-0, 3-0). The Orange took down second-ranked Clemson a week ago, the first time Syracuse beat a top two ranked team since 1984. 

Miami is still perfect for this season as the Hurricanes squeaked out a win against Georgia Tech 25-24 last week. They put the second longest winning streak in college football on the line in this ACC game.

Syracuse University Football averages a robust 32 points per game. That ranks 32nd in all of Division One College Football.  While Quarterback Eric Dungy  receives a healthy share of the credit, it would be foolish to pretend that he has done it all alone.

This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, Jack Patel spotlights the two senior Wide Receivers who make the offense go. 

Each year in sports seems to bring an emerging star out of no where that demands out attention.  In 2001 the world was introduce to a skinny quarterback named Tom Brady. In 2012 the Golden State Warriors' spent a 2nd round pick on a player who was supposedly too slow, but Draymond Green turned out pretty good.

This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, Tim Scott highlights a potential star on the  Syracuse Football team, Scoop Bradshaw. 

Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, and Florida State. Those are some of the major contenders year in and year out in college football. Those squads are filled with 5 star recruits. But, for those athletes who don't immediately land at a major program, there is another way.

This week WAER's Jake Marsh explores the path from junior college to division one college football.

The Orange travelled to Death Valley this weekend to take on the twenty-fifth ranked Tigers. Syracuse stayed with LSU throughout the contest, but came up short as the Tigers (3-1, 0-1) beat the Orange (2-2, 0-0), 35-26.

This contest started quickly. LSU barreled into the end-zone on a Derrius Guice one-yard touchdown just nine seconds into the contest to take the 7-0 lead. Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey was intercepted on the first play of the game to set up the Tiger score.
