Syracuse Faces Virginia In Conference Rematch

As we approach the halfway point of the 2019-2020 college basketball season, the output from Syracuse basketball leaves much to be desired. Sitting at 8-7, with a dismal 1-3 Atlantic Coast record, with the most difficult part of their schedule just ahead, Syracuse does not have much to look forward to either. On Saturday at 4:00, the Orange will take on the No. 18 Virginia Cavaliers (11-3, 3-1) in Charlottesville in a rematch of the 2019-20 season opener. 

Syracuse got run all over by Cam Akers last week, to the tune of 145 yards and 4 touchdowns. This week against Boston College, things don't get any easier against AJ Dillon. Dillon is the only 1,000 yard rusher in the ACC. Hosts Brendan Mortensen and Owen Valentine are joined by JD Raucci to discuss SU's defensive struggles last week, and if the Orange can turn things around against the Eagles. 


Maryland Provides Syracuse With Reality Check

The buzz around the Syracuse football team was palpable. Expectations were high and excitement levels were even higher. In 2018, the Orange won ten games for the first time in seventeen years. They had come into the 2019 college football season at No. 22 in the Associated Press Top-25, and had shutout the Liberty Flames 24-0 in Week One. Syracuse's week two date with Maryland did not lack signifcance, but many Orange faithful had their sights set on week three, Syracuse's home opener against top-ranked Clemson, and a rematch of Syracuse's dome-storming upset victory two years ago.
