And just like that, things look a lot more daunting for the Syracuse Orange. While the Stony Brook performance could be written off as the Orange playing down to their opponent, the 17-10 loss to Minnesota confirmed that this team is who we thought they weren't. And the Quest For Beef just got a whole lot tougher.

Syracuse has to go 5-3 from there on our for a chance at beef. And that suddenly looks pretty daunting.
Now, let's take a look ahead to see how our upcoming opponents did and how likely we are to raise the QOM in the coming weeks...
Rutgers Scarlet Knights (4-0): You could easily look at Rutgers' 4-0 record and say they haven't played anyone all that impressive but the truth is, on paper, that was a solid 35-26 win over Arkansas this past weekend.
Cincinnati Bearcats (2-0):Cincy didn't play this past weekend. I feel like they never play. I'm not sure they've actually played this season.
Total Remaining Opponent Record: 19-10
