Pittsburgh gave us hope, but there is none against this tough team. Can we even call this a rivalry game anymore? A rivalry implies we win this game once in a while. Either way, look for Syracuse to lose, as expected 38 to 17.

Three Idiots on Sports: Syracuse - West Virginia Official Idiotic Predictions
As much as I want the Orange to win, I just don't see how they can move the ball effectively. I think the defense bounces back and plays much better, but eventually wears down because they'll be on the field all damn day.

Six catches for 145 yards and four touchdowns. That's the total contribution this season from Bradley Starks, WVU's most veteran deep threat.

"I think if we said we'd be 4-2 after six games we would all be excited. Of course we always want more, we are always pushing for more, and Doug (Marrone) has done a wonderful job of creating a culture and foundation that is going to be strong.

In truth, then, it is hard to tell how much Syracuse has improved since Marrone took over for Greg Robinson, who had one-, two-, three- and four-win seasons (not in that order) in four years as the SU coach. That fourth win this season, though, might be an indicator. Syracuse beat South Florida 13-9, holding the Bulls without an offensive touchdown in Tampa.

Joseph proved last season that he could be a great role player behind Wesley Johnson. But now Johnson is gone, and Joseph must blossom into a star for the Orange to remain near the top of the Big East. I suspect he will (and that they will, too).

Missouri Tigers must embrace or ignore streak to beat Oklahoma Sooners - ESPN
"I think the thing that happened is we stopped looking at 'Penn State,'" said McPherson, now an entrepreneur and a college football analyst for MSG. "You always went into the season and the game always loomed on the schedule. We stayed so focused on every game [in 1987], we never thought about them until we got to them."

What is this? What's going on? Who is Mac Miller? Why is this happening? Why do I feel so old?
