Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Terrel Hunt will get his first start this Saturday. Let's get introduced to what he's up against.

The Huntening is upon us. Let's find out what Terrel & The Gang are in for when the Tulane Green Wave come to town this weekend.

Teams: Syracuse Orange (1-2) vs. Tulane Green Wave (2-1)

Day & Time: Saturday, September 21st, 12:30 p.m. EST

Field: Carrier Dome (Syracuse, NY)

Line: Syracuse -14.5 (opened at 10.5)

TV: ACC Regional Sports Network, MSG.

Announcers: Wes Durham & Brian Stann

Radio: Syracuse IMG Network

Tulane News: Tulane Athletics

Rivalry: 7-1, Syracuse

Streak: 5, Syracuse

First Meeting: 1975, Syracuse 31 - Tulane 13

Last Meeting: The 2011 meeting between the two schools looked like a dominant Syracuse performance early before devolving into a near-upset. Syracuse needed a Das Boot field goal as time expired to hold off the pesky Wave, 37-34. You may remember the game as the one attended by rough 87 people in the SuperDome,

School Connections: You can call this one The Roy Danforth Bowl. Syracuse's first coach to take the basketball team to the Final Four left to take over the Tulane basketball program, handing the keys to a young whipper-snapper named Jim Boeheim. We're fine with Roy's decision.

Head Coaches: SU: Scott Shafer (1st Year, 1-2), Tulane: Curtis Johnson (2nd Year, 4-11)

Last Year: The Curtis Johnson Era began with a whimper last season as Tulane eked out a 2-10 campaign. The team improved in the scoring column as the season went on but they left a lot to be desired after back-to-back two-win seasons.

"Fear Me, I've Killed Hundreds Of Timelords": Syracuse will actually see a few familiar faces on Saturday. You might remember Orleans Darkwa, the RB who garnered 65 yards and two touchdowns against the Orange in 2011. You might also remember Xavier Rush, who torched the Orange for 135 receiving yards and two scores.

One face you won't recognize, but whose name you will, is quarterback Nick Montana. Son of Joe has seven touchdown passes to only two interceptions so far. He's also developed quite a rapport with WR Ryan Grant, who has 24 catches for 348 yards. Let's keep an eye on him.

Last Game: The Green Wave rebounded from a shootout loss to South Alabama by defeating Skip Holtz's Louisiana Tech squad, 24-15.

Fun Fact: If Syracuse wins this game, it will be the 700th win in school history. No pressure, you guys.
