When Terrel Hunt steps onto the field on Saturday, he’ll have one of his top targets back in action. 

Sophomore tight end Josh Parris will make his season debut against Maryland, SU head coach Scott Shafer said on Thursday.  Parris came into the year as Syracuse’s starting tight end, but had surgery on Aug. 20 to clean out cartilage in his knee. 

"Parris has had a good week of practice so we’re looking forward to getting him back on the field," Shafer said.

Syracuse Dominates Central Michigan in 40-3 Road Win

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."

Terrel Hunt yearned to get back onto the field to redeem himself, since last time out he got ejected from Syracuse's 27-26 double-overtime win over Villanova.  After having to wait two full weeks, Hunt finally gets his opportunity on Saturday as the Orange (1-0) takes on the Central Michigan Chippewas (2-0) in Mount Pleasant.

“I’m itching a lot to get out there,” Hunt said Wednesday.

  During a celebration held on Saturday, August 23, 2014, Sean McDonough (SU '84) and Bill Roth (SU '87) were both inducted into the WAER Hall of Fame.  The program highlighted each inductees contributions to the sports broadcasting industry and their connection and contributions to Syracuse University noncommercial radio station, WAER, where both served as student broadcasters in the sports department.
