Miami eyes a sixth straight win over Syracuse


The Miami Hurricanes are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Syracuse Orange. The Hurricanes can extend that winning streak with a win at home over the Orange this Saturday.

  • Syracuse is 6-0 ATS in its last six games on the road after losing its most recent road game.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Miami’s last nine games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Syracuse’s last 14 games.

Miami trailed by 11 points late in the third quarter against Georgia Tech last Saturday, but an impressive 85-yard drive late in the game set up a game-winning field-goal opportunity for Michael Badgley, who improved to 4-for-4 on the day with the kick. The 25-24 win catapulted Miami into the top 10 at No. 8 and brought the Hurricanes’ record over their last 10 games to 10-0 SU and 8-2 ATS.

In a week full of upsets, none was bigger than Syracuse’s 27-24 win over the defending champion Clemson Tigers as 24.5-point home underdogs. Facing one of the best defenses in the nation, junior quarterback Eric Dungey passed for 278 yards and three touchdowns and added 61 rushing yards on the ground. The Orange were just 5-18 SU in their previous 23 games against ACC opponents before pulling off that upset.
