Syracuse, NY - Syracuse (0-2) welcomes Wagner (1-1) to the Carrier Dome Saturday. The orange is still searching for its first win of the season and of the Scott Shafer era.
The big talking point in coming into this game centers around Quarterback Drew Allen. The senior threw four interceptions last week against Northwestern and has come under a lot of scrutiny in the last week, but Quarterbacks coach, Tim Lester maintained all week in practice that Allen is still the starter.
Evanston, Ill. - Everybody remembers last season’s heartbreaking loss in the Carrier Dome to Northwestern to start the year. The orange stormed back from 22-point deficit to take the lead with just over two minutes to go in the game and ultimately lost on a Northwestern final drive making the score 42-41 Wildcats. The two teams face off again this Saturday and this time it is in Evanston.
Preseason camp is winding down for Syracuse Football. The Orange has already shifted the attention to its season opener against Penn State. Head coach Scott Shafer and the Orange are following a script to be ready for the August 31 game at MetLife Stadium.
