Syracuse Football Eyes Second Straight Upset
Coming off one of the biggest wins in program history, Syracuse takes on another big challenge this weekend. The Orange shocked the college football world by knocking off #2 Clemson last Friday night at the Carrier Dome and now they'll face another top 10 team in the Miami Hurricanes Saturday afternoon.
Syracuse went into that game against the defending National Champions as 24 point underdogs and when Clemson starting quarterback Kelly Bryant left the game with an injury, the Cuse defense, already playing really well, found ways to shut down the Tigers offense in critical spots in a 27-24 win.
Senior linebacker Zaire Franklin is the first 3-time captain of the Syracuse football team since the 1890s and he was a leading force in the win over Clemson which brought back memories for fans of the Orange beating #1 Nebraska in 1984. Franklin joined Big Board Sports to relive the big moment of beating Clemson and to preview the matchup with Miami.
