The Syracuse Orange (1-1, 0-1 ACC) will look to right the ship against the South Florida Bulls (2-0, 0-0 AAC) on Saturday. The Orange was crushed by the No. 10 ranked Louisville Cardinals 62-28. It was a disappointing result in a game that would’ve put Syracuse back on the radar if they had hung close.

The Syracuse Orange (1-0, 0-0 ACC), fresh off a 33-7 win against Colgate, welcome the Louisville Cardinals (1-0, 0-0) to the Carrier Dome. This game will be the first conference game in the Dino Babers era. Fans got a look at how fast a Babers led offense can be in the opener against Colgate, but it will be interesting to see how the offense looks against a tougher opponent.

Syracuse Football Set to Begin Dino Babers Era

The Dino Babers era of Syracuse Football is set to begin on Friday against Colgate at the Carrier Dome. Babers, who was hired as the new Orange football coach on December 5th, 2015, is looking to breathe new life into a football program that has struggled over the past few seasons.

Babers’ calling card is his up-tempo offense, which he implemented at past stops like Bowling Green and Eastern Illinois. Babers served as an assistant coach at Baylor under Art Briles, considered by many to be the standard for the up-tempo, spread offense.

As time expired, Cole Murphy's 35-yard field goal attempt sailed through the uprights, clinching a 20-17 victory for Syracuse over Boston College at the Carrier Dome on Saturday. The Orange stormed the field, but head coach Scott Shafer -- coaching his final game at Syracuse -- stood on the sideline and didn't move for a moment.

NC State 42, Syracuse 29: Orange Drop Eighth Straight

Nov 21, 2015

Syracuse suffered an eighth consecutive loss on Saturday, falling 42-29 to the NC State Wolfpack at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina. The loss means Syracuse will end the season without a win away from the Carrier Dome, as the Orange are now 0-5 on the road. 

Back when he arrived in our city to take over the college athletic program to which so many folks attach so much of their civic pride, I wrote a welcome to Mark Coyle in this space with the wish that he concentrate on a task that could and should go a long way toward heads held higher.

Syracuse falls to No. 1 Clemson, 37-27

Syracuse lost in wire-to-wire fashion yet again on Saturday, this time falling 37-27 to Clemson at the Carrier Dome.

 

After falling behind 14-0 in the game’s final minutes, Syracuse actually outscored Clemson for the remainder of the game. That was thanks in large part to the play of walk-on quarterback Zack Mahoney, who started in the place of freshman quarterback Eric Dungey. But in the end, it wasn’t quite enough for the Orange (3-7, 1-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) to upset the Tigers (10-0, 7-0).
