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.
