Syracuse Football Going for Historic Upset Over No. 1 Florida State

It hasn’t been another season of blowouts for Florida State, but they’ve done enough to do what many of the highest ranked teams haven’t – win.  The reigning national champions comes to the Carrier Dome to face a Syracuse team that has lost its last three games. The Seminoles, meanwhile, haven’t lost since the 2012 season.

“There’s a reason why they’ve won 21 in a row: great coaching and great players,” Scott Shafer said.  “We have a daunting task in front of us, but we're looking forward to it.”

Demoted George McDonald "Blindsided" By Recent Staff Changes

George McDonald said he was "blindsided" on Saturday when Scott Shafer told him that he'd been demoted from offensive coordinator to wide receivers coach.

"If I would’ve known I would only get 18 games to be offensive coordinator, I would have stayed at the University of Arkansas," McDonald said.  "I would have never came here."

Cardinal Sins: Poor Execution Costs Syracuse in 28-6 Loss to Louisville

Terrel Hunt held his arms up in disbelief.  His last-ditch spike attempt at the end of the first half left no time on the clock to run a play from the Louisville 2-yard line. 

It left the struggling quarterback with a frustrated feeling. 

And once again, it left the Orange (2-3, 0-1 ACC) without any points in the red zone.  

“It wasn’t good enough,” Scott Shafer said on his team’s performance. “It wasn’t good enough to get it done. So we have to go back to work and try to get it better. It’s so simple it’s hard to comprehend, but it the God’s honest truth.”
