The Syracuse Orange (3-0, 1-0) will host the Connecticut Huskies (1-2, 0-1) as it looks to remain unbeaten on Saturday in the Carrier Dome. The struggling Huskies are coming off their first win of the season, while the Orange is looking to start its season 4-0 for the first time under three-year head coach Dino Babers.

Syracuse University Football is underway and with it, year three in the Dino Babers era. There are still plenty of questions to be answered but one area of comfort should be quarterback.  This week WAER's Meredith Kava reminds us QB is set not only for this season but potentially the next few years as well.

Also, the uptempo style of offense that Babers brought to SU the past few seasons relies on a strong running game. How equipped are the Orange to dominate through the run game? WAER's James Colgan tells us why we should feel confident.

Football season is over for the Syracuse Orange (4-8, 2-6), and it ends on the lowest of lows: suffering a 42-14 beatdown at the hands of Boston College (7-5, 4-4).

The first possession of the game was an Orange 3 and out. The second possession was a 73 yard drive for the Eagles, capped off by a touchdown run from running back AJ Dillon. The freshman finished the day with 193 yards on the ground, more than half of Boston College's 333 rushing yards.

This week on the Best of WAER Sports Podcast, not only does Jim Boeheim's squad welcome four new freshman , they have all played internationally. WAER's Meredith Kava tells us where they came from and where they hope to take SU basketball.

Also this week, despite the gaudy stats posted by starting quarterback Eric Dungy there is another quarterback on the Syracuse roster worth talking about. WAER's Maura Sheridan has the story of backup Zach Mahoney.
