Syracuse football (4-4, 2-2) shut out Wake Forest (4-5, 2-4) in the Carrier Dome 13-0. The Orange defense allowed no points just two weekends after it let Georgia Tech put 56 on the board down in Atlanta.
Both offenses started slow in the first half putting up two zeroes at the intermission. The Orange and Demon Deacons combined for 14 punts and zero 3rd down conversions in the first half.
Syracuse football (3-4, 1-2) hosts Wake Forest (4-4, 2-3) this Saturday. The last time the Orange was in action SU “got (its) rumps kicked” in the words of head Coach Scott Shafer following the beat down in Atlanta.
The Orange looks to rebound from that horrible 56-0 loss against Georgia Tech with a win against Wake Forest at home. SU gave up nearly 400 yards on the ground alone against the Yellow Jackets, but the run defense is not the only worry against the Demon Deacons.
