Syracuse vs. Boston College
One of the most resilient rivalries in college football, the Orange and Eagles have played each other over 45 times since first meeting in 1924. The two schools were founding members of the Big East, and first conference rivals in football in 1991. After Boston College left for the ACC, the series was continued as a non-conference game until it was announced that Syracuse was joining the ACC. Now renewed as a conference rivalry, this game is promises to be as competitive and intriguing as ever.
Syracuse vs. West Virginia
One of the closest rivalries on the East Coast, these old Big East rivals have been meeting on the gridiron since 1945. The Orange and the Mountaineers play for the right to bring the Ben Schwartzwalder Trophy back to their campus. The series has been played over 55 times, with the Orange holding a slight advantage in wins. With both schools leaving the Big East, the future of the rivalry has been put in jeopardy, with fans from both schools hoping that it is renewed as an non-conference game soon.
Syracuse vs. Penn State
One of the historic rivalries on the East Coast, these two squads are known for having very contentious matchups. The rivalry came to a head in the 50’s and 60’s where legendary head coaches Ben Swartzwalder and Joe Paterno battled in some of the most memorable games of the century. Neither team was able to gain a clear advantage and the competition was so fierce that scuffles were not uncommon. In 2002 the rivalry was renewed and the competition in recent years has been reminiscent of its glory days.
2011 Syracuse Football Preview
Syracuse was perhaps the biggest surprise in the Big East last year, rebounding from a string of embarrassing seasons to post a winning record and capture the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl. Coach Doug Marrone will certainly be looking to build on last year's success, and with a number of returning starters, there's no reason why he can't.
On offense, the Orange will once again be led by quarterback Ryan Nassib, who was more than capable of running Marrone's scheme last year and is an excellent game manager. He will be supported by senior running back Antwon Bailey, who will look to build off a solid junior year when he rushed for 4.9 yards a carry. Marcus Sales and Van Chew will lead the receiving corps.
The defense was the strength of Syracuse's team last year, ranking in the top 20 in terms of points allowed. This year, fans of the Orange can expect much of the same with the likes of defensive ends Chandler Jones and Mikhail Marinovich leading the way. Joining them will be the experienced duo of Phillip Thomas and Shamarko Thomas, who will hold down the secondary and prevent the Orange from giving up too many quick, long scores.
2010 Syracuse Football Preview
The good news is the Syracuse Orange football team has nowhere to go but up. In the 2010 season, the team will look to use its strong running backs, up-and-coming wide receivers and emerging leadership from a young quarterback to improve on its 4-8 2009 campaign. Despite their subpar record, the Orange made substantial gains last season under new head coach Doug Marrone. Throughout the year, Syracuse hung in close games against college football's top teams, and defeated their Big East Conference rival Rutgers by a score of 31-13.
Leveraging these positive experiences, the team is preparing to escape the Big East basement in the upcoming season. A manageable schedule, more experienced squad and powerful defense will drive the Orange to greater heights.
Derrell Smith and Doug Hogue look to be standout linebackers, and both the team's secondary and defensive line are talented enough to keep opponents out of the endzone. As the season begins, fans can look forward to a competition for the team's starting quarterback spot, as Ryan Nassib and Charley Loeb both look to become the new leader of the Orange offense.
Syracuse starts its season at Akron on September 4, and plays its first home game against Maine on September 18.
2009 Syracuse Football Preview
Syracuse will be looking to rebuild in 2009 under new Head Coach Doug Marrone. Marrone is a Cuse alum who was hired to take over the Orange program and restore it to a power in Big East football. Marrone will start his overhaul of Syracuse on the offensive side, where he has the most experience. If he and his Orange play up to their potential then 2009 could be a solid year in Syracuse.
2008 Syracuse Football Preview
Until recently the Syracuse Orange were known as the Syracuse Orangemen. They recently changed their name to drop the Orangemen down to just Orange.
The Syracuse Orange football program finds itself at a turning point this season. Greg Robinson returns as head coach with an ultimatum that the team must improve dramatically or else. The Carrier Dome will roar this year as Syracuse fans try to tear the roof off the stadium in support of their beloved Orange. The team has fallen on hard times recently, but this could be the year for Syracuse to rise back to its former level of success. It better be!
