Syracuse football: First down offense vs Boston College

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Strong finish to the regular season The Syracuse Orange have been much better on first downs this season. While I’ll break down the totals for next week, let’s look at how the Orange finished up against Boston College. Syracuse started off finding success throwing on first down against the weaker Eagles defense. A litany of self-inflicted wounds meant that promising drives came up empty but still there was improvement in the passing game on Saturday.

Syracuse’s defense held out as long as it could but the Orange couldn’t find any offensive rhythm as Syracuse lost 73-44 to Illinois. Both teams struggled early as inside presence was established quickly. Jesse Edwards and Coleman Hawkins stayed stout in the paint and denied easy opportunities. As the offensive games shifted...

Hell, if you read a lot of comments after Saturday night’s game, you might have assumed that Syracuse was the 3-win team in Chestnut Hill that lost to UConn this season. No, the Orange did not have a pretty season. They...
