In what was supposed to be a competitive matchup between two middle-of-the-road ACC teams, Georgia Tech absolutely manhandled Syracuse today in Atlanta. SU gave up 394 yards on the ground to the Yellow Jackets, failed to find the end zone, and was demolished, 56-0.
Some of the logicians in the house would tell you that if Clemson is 35 points better than Syracuse inside the Carrier Dome and if Florida State is 37 points better than Clemson in Death Valley, then the Seminoles will be 72 points better than the Orange down there in Tallahassee. At least.

After a hot start to the Terrel Hunt era, things have taken a turn for the worst for Syracuse as their quarterback of choice is struggling mightily. Since ACC play started, the redshirt sophomore has completed just 25 of 58 passes for 194 yards and six interceptions.
