ATLANTA, GA - Syracuse (3-4, 1-2) was throttled 56-0 to Georgia Tech (4-3, 3-2) at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta on Saturday. The Orange offense struggled to get off the ground, amassing just 75 total rushing yards and 133 passing yards. SU head coach Scott Shafer was most frustrated with his team's inability to stay disciplined.

"Too many penalties today," coach Shafer said, in reference to his team's nine infractions for 91 yards. "We need to mature quickly as a team, but it starts with me."

Syracuse (3-3, 1-1) hits the road again this weekend as the orange travels down to Atlanta to play Georgia Tech (3-3, 2-2). SU comes into the game fresh off its first ACC win and a road win against North Carolina State.

The Orange faces a Yellow Jackets team that ranks 6th in the nation in rushing yards led by the two-headed monster of senior running back, David Sims, and sophomore quarterback, Vad Lee. The two have combined for 635 yards on the year and the team as a whole has more than 1,700 yards on the ground.

The Orange (3-3) edged NC State (3-3) 24-10 Saturday, earning its first ACC victory in school history. Both offenses struggled to find any rhythm early on, but the SU rushing attack of Jerome Smith and Prince-Tyson Gulley turned it on to pull away from the Wolfpack in the 4th quarter. Smith led the team with 140 yards on the ground, while Gulley was right behind him with 132.

Syracuse (2-3, 0-1) is still in search of its first ACC win after the orange was blown out by Clemson 49-14 in the Carrier Dome last Saturday. Now SU turns its attention towards an N.C State (3-2, 0-2) team who is also looking for its first conference win after to losing to Wake Forest 28-13.

The Wolfpack will host the orange in Raleigh at 3:30 on Saturday. Coach Shafer knows that it will be a hostile environment. "I coached at NC State in the late 90s, and it gets loud there. They have a great fan base,” said Shafer.

Clemson made sure Syracuse never had control of the game. After three plays and just 38 seconds, the #3-ranked Tigers led Syracuse 7-0 and Heisman candidate Tajh Boyd was 3-3 with 82 yards and a touchdown.

“When they scored fast, we were like ‘Whoa.’,” said Syracuse cornerback Julian Whigham. “They’re as good as we thought they were.”

Clemson (5-0, 3-0 ACC) continued to dominate Syracuse (2-3, 0-1 ACC) and won 49-14. Boyd threw touchdown passes of 60, 42, and 91 yards to pace the Tigers past the Orange.
