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.
A logo has been selected through online voting to help joggers, bicyclists, walkers with strollers and others to the Onondaga Creekwalk. The design was selected out of three that were put up on a website. It will be put on dozens of signs the mark the path of the Creekwalk and directions to it.
The designs were all created by classes in Syracuse University's School of Visual and Performing Arts. Voting took place between October 2nd and 9th.
Guns currently in possession of the Syracuse Police will now be headed for new lives – as high-end jewelry. The city announced a partnership today with a company called Liberty United, which melts down the metal from guns and turns the new alloys into bracelets, necklaces and rings. Money from selling the jewelry is directed back to gun-violence prevention programs in participating communities.
Syracuse (2-2) rolled Tulane 52-17 Saturday in SU's second home game of the year. A week after coach Scott Shafer won his first game, Terrel Hunt followed suit capturing his first victory as the Orange's starting quarterback. The redshirt sophomore picked up where he left off, leading the Cuse to eleven straight scoring drives at one point dating back to the game versus Northwestern.
