If the Syracuse Orange want to secure a bowl game for sure, they'll need to win two of their final three games this season. Of the three, today's against the North Carolina State Wolfpack might be their best shot, so they better take advantage of it.
Action kicks off in the Carrier Dome at 12:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on the ACC Network (local affiliates here).
Syracuse's mission will be a bit tougher with the news that sophomore quarterback Eric Dungey will be out. SU officially made the announcement in the morning as now we'll wait to see if Austin Wilson or Zack Mahoney gets the nod. Or perhaps they split it.
- Both teams come in at 4-5 but they got here in very different ways.
