The Syracuse Orange (2-3, 0-1 ACC) look to get their first conference win of the season as they travel to BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, North Carolina to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (4-1, 1-1 ACC). Since joining the ACC three years ago, Syracuse has won all three matchups against Wake Forest.

Syracuse head coach Dino Babers designed the Orange’s new, revamped offense to win games just like this one. They didn’t.

The Syracuse Orange (2-3) were defeated by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2-3) by a score of 50-27 Saturday in a game of big plays.

The game was very competitive in the first half, where the two teams combined for 727 yards of total offense, including 437 in the first quarter alone. This was to be expected as Syracuse’s defensive woes this season are well documented and Notre Dame fired their defensive coordinator days before the game Saturday.

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.
