34-16. Syracuse is a BCS team after all and have been playing quite a bit better under second-year coach, Doug Marrone. But quarterback Ryan Nassib is making his second career start and will no doubt be jolted by the raucous environment of Husky Stadium.
The Orange have a solid running back in Delone Carter who could have a decent day on the ground if he’s half as good at carrying the football as he is at punching snowball-throwing kids in the face.
Nice “zero tolerance assault policy” Syracuse! But in all fairness, that dude’s face looked pretty wonky to begin with.
While the Orange defense could be a bit stout (as well as overrated), I expect Locker to rack up a number of big plays by finding open receivers downfield. The offense won’t light the world on fire, but should look a lot more explosive than against BYU.
Let’s notch a win and take another step towards a decent bowl game!
