The Syracuse Orange (4-7, 2-5) likely has no chance of playing in a bowl game this year.

The team had a chance to keep their postseason hopes alive, but they were outmatched from the very start in a 56-10 loss at Louisville (7-4, 4-4).

The first two plays for the home team were a 29 yard run for quarterback Lamar Jackson, and a 46 yard touchdown run for running back Malik Williams. Those two big plays set the tone for the game.

This ACC matchup will feature two high-flying offenses and two defenses searching for answers.

Home is where the heart is. For the Syracuse football team, this statement continues to ring true. The Orange (4-5, 2-3) has yet to win a road game this year, after losing 27-24 to Florida State (3-5, 3-4) today. Cole Murphy's potential game-tying field goal from 43 yards missed wide left. Syracuse head coach Dino Babers had a solid performance from quarterback Eric Dungey, but that was not enough to earn the victory.

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).

After a failed fourth down conversion on Syracuse's final possession, quarterback Eric Dungey walked to the sideline and slammed his helmet down in frustration. As hard as he tried, the junior couldn't will his team past #8 Miami (6-0, 4-0). The Orange hung around all game, but ultimately lost 27-19.

While neither team played particularly well, the first half was especially sloppy. Miami receivers dropped countless passes to spoil drive after drive. For the Orange (4-4,2-2), Eric Dungey threw four interceptions, all coming in the first thirty minutes.

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.

The Syracuse Orange (3-3, 1-1), coming off of two close losses on the road to LSU and NC State, picked up its third win of the season at home against the Pittsburgh Panthers (2-4, 0-2) 27-24. Syracuse was led by quarterback Eric Dungey who threw for 365 yards and three touchdowns, one on the ground and two through the air.

'Cuse got the scoring started early in the first quarter with a chip-shot 26-yard field goal off the foot of kicker Cole Murphy.
