Syracuse Orange (5-5) vs. Cincinnati Bearcats (7-3) GameThread

Loading Scores

The opportunity for a postseason appearance is slowly disappearing for the Syracuse Orange so it is now that the team needs to step up and assert itself as it closes out the home portion of the schedule with a meeting against the Cincinnati Bearcats in the Carrier Dome.

The Bearcats were expected to have their way in the conference this season, but after winning seven of the first eight games the team now finds itself in a five-way tie for third place in the conference standings. Last week Cincinnati scored a season-low three points in a 20-3 setback versus Rutgers on the road. Certainly having someone other than the injured Zach Collaros in at quarterback is a major factor, but the Bearcats had better get used to life without him because he's on the sidelines with a broken right ankle.

As far as the all-time series is concerned, the Bearcats have taken six of the previous 11 matchups, although the Orange won last year's meeting at Nippert Stadium by a score of 31-7. For the third year in a row Cincinnati will be fielding a backup quarterback when they step into the Carrier Dome on Saturday afternoon.

It's Senior Day so I'm sure folks like Antwon Bailey, Nick Provo, Van Chew and Mikhail Marinovich want to end their Dome careers with a significant victory.
