Syracuse Just Can’t Beat The Best Teams

The Syracuse Orange have not been very good the past two seasons, as they have amassed an 8-1 record since the start of the 2014 season. To the surprise of nobody, Syracuse has struggled against the best teams with just one win in their past 13 games against opponents with winning records. The Orange are going to be in tough to rectify that record when they take on the Louisville Cardinals Friday.

  • Louisville is 5-1 in their past six games against Syracuse.
  • Syracuse is 5-0 ATS in their past five games at home.
  • The OVER is 5-1 in Louisville’s past six games.

What can Lamar Jackson possibly do for an encore after his ridiculous Week 1 performance? The sophomore quarterback accounted for 405 yards of offense and eight touchdowns in a single half of play. Maybe even more impressive was that Jackson’s six passing touchdowns all went to different receivers.

Syracuse is also coming off a dominant Week 1 victory as they cruised past Colgate 33-7. Dino Babers' new no-huddle offense went for 554 yards on 81 plays, which is good for 6.8 yards per play. Sophomore QB Eric Dungey seems better suited to this offense, as he went 34 of 40 for 355 yards and two touchdowns.
