Summer Shootaround: Best of Rest - ESPN
Northern Iowa at Syracuse, Nov. 12: If there was ever a time to play the Orange this season, it's in Game 1, when Syracuse will be integrating a talented but young roster.

In the end, though, Washington has a few more playmakers on offense, led by Jake Locker, and will find a way to get it done at home. But Syracuse gains respect with the effort.
The Daily Orange - Pacific brings back football program after 19-year hiatus
Prediction: Syracuse 23, Washington 20 - Everybody knows about Jake Locker by now. How many times have we heard the phrase "Heisman candidate"? Syracuse looked quite good last week against Akron and should give the Huskies all they can handle, and perhaps more.
