Syracuse Can't Capitalize on Irish Mistakes in 31-15 Loss

It only took back-to-back completions for Everett Golson to change the course of the game and show that he belongs in pro stadiums.

Golson’s two second quarter touchdown passes to William Fuller stifled a Syracuse defense that had shut him out up to that point in the game.  His precise passing attack propelled No. 8 Notre Dame (4-0) to a 31-15 win over the Orange (2-2) in MetLife Stadium and allowed the Irish to withstand a five turnover performance.  It’s the first time the Irish have started the season by scoring at least 30 points in all four games since 1943.

Syracuse vs. Notre Dame: Stats, Storylines and More

Notre Dame’s perfect red zone play this season explains why the Irish have started the season 3-0.  Syracuse’s struggles in that department explain why the Orange has not.

SU was hoping for an undefeated matchup at MetLife on Saturday night, but a series of miscues and mistakes cost Syracuse in its 34-20 loss last week.  Instead, the Orange gets a chance at redemption when it takes on No. 8 Notre Dame at 8 p.m.

MetLife Games Give Syracuse Recruiting and Scheduling Advantages

Syracuse takes on No. 8 Notre Dame at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

A national audience will be watching when Syracuse takes on Notre Dame on Saturday night at MetLife Stadium. And Dontae Strickland, the highest rated player in Syracuse’s incoming freshman class, will be watching as well. 

Syracuse’s journey to New Jersey won’t only be a business trip, but a recruiting one, too.  Strickland, a South Brunswick, N.J. native, will be at the game along with several other players Syracuse is targeting.

Syracuse Falls to Maryland, 34-20, in Mistake Filled Performance

Syracuse warms up before taking on the Maryland Terrapins.

Terrel Hunt’s two turnovers – a red zone interception and a late fumble – turned into ten Maryland Terrapin points. Syracuse accumulated 589 yards of offense, but a series of blunders - penalties, dropped interceptions and errant throws - prevented the Orange from going 3-0 for the first time in 23 years.

The Orange (2-1) lost 34-20 in an underwhelming home performance on Saturday.

There's only one week before Syracuse's primetime matchup against Notre Dame, but the Orange coaches and players are insisting that their attention is only on Maryland.

"We’re just focused on Maryland," SU head coach Scott Shafer said.  "We’re locked into what Maryland does.  Daily, the message is to focus on ourselves and then focus on the opponent at hand."
