All Malik Willis ever wanted was an opportunity to play. This Saturday, the dual threat quarterback gets his first start against a power five school when he and the 4-0 Liberty Flames march into the Dome to play 1-3 Syracuse.

Years ago, the signal caller could have never imagined he would wait this long to start against a big conference school. Willis committed to Auburn in the winter of 2017, but he never found solid footing in the starting rotation – stuck behind current New England Patriots backup Jarrett Stidham.

SU Offense Sputters in 21-10 Defeat to #25 Pitt

For one reason or another, Syracuse and Pittsburgh seem to play close football games nearly every year. The previous three matchups between the Orange and Panthers were all decided by a single score, a streak that came to an end earlier today.

Given the lopsided spread (-21 in favor of Pitt via ESPN), one might believe that the eleven-point loss was a decent result for SU. However, concerns about the ineffectiveness of the offense superseded any positives that could be taken away from this game.

A new defensive coordinator means a new defensive scheme for Syracuse Football this season. Hosts Owen Valentine and Ben Shulman are joined by Donnie Druin and Chris Karpman to talk about White as a coach, the 3-3-5 defense and much more!
