Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange (3-5) need to get their act together in a hurry if they want to make it to a bowl game. First things first, they have to find a way to win on the road and they'll get a chance against the Louisville Cardinals (4-4) today.

The game kicks at 12:30 p.m. at Papa Johns Stadium. All your channel, history & time particulars can be found here and you can check the ACC Network affiliates list here.


The spread on this one just keeps climbing. It started at Louisville (-12), worked it's way up to -14 and the game will start with the Cards getting -17.

No changes on the depth chart for this week, but there will be key absences for the Orange defense, particularly.

Syracuse was going to be wearing all-white today, but a late audible means orange helmets.

Oh, and remember that time Louisville used a fake quote and a cardboard cutout of Ryan Nassib to pump themselves up? The Orange won that game by a mile.
