For a Syracuse Orange football fan, there is no bigger matchup than Clemson. Despite a 63-20 defeat to Maryland, a struggling offense under a new quarterback, and the threat of the number one team in the country marching in the Dome, the Orange fan base was in a frenzy hours before the game started.

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.

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.
