In First Career Start, AJ Long Ends SU Football's Losing Streak

First, defensive tackle John Raymon beat the odds by recovering from a severe knee injury faster than anyone expected.

On Saturday, he helped the Orange (3-4) beat the Demon Deacons by assisting on Syracuse’s second defensive touchdown of the day.

"I’m very excited," Raymon said this week on returning to football.  "My team’s excited, my coaches are excited and I feel like we’re all in a good place and we’re all on the same page now. I’m happy I’m back."

The AJ Long era has officially begun.

With a pair of injured quarterbacks, Scott Shafer now turns to his third-string passer to try to end a four game losing streak, save Syracuse’s season and, possibly, save his own job. 

Syracuse couldn’t upset top-ranked Florida State last week, but Long impressed in his college debut.  The true freshman completed 16-of-27 passes for 167 yards against the Seminoles along with two touchdowns and two interceptions.  It was a rare bright spot for the Orange, who’s lost each of its last four games by at least ten points.

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.
