It's a battle of offenses, but which one will be more offensive?

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange football team opens ACC play tonight when it hosts the No. 13 Louisville Cardinals in the Carrier Dome at 8 p.m.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN2 with Adam Amin and Mack Brown on the call.

As you're no doubt aware, the game is an Orange Out. Fans are asked to wear orange. The team will be wearing orange. Students are getting in for free and assumedly wearing orange. The only people in the building who shouldn't be in orange are Cardinals fans, players, and coaches.

Syracuse is coming off a 33-7 victory in their season opener against Colgate. In that game Eric Dungey was 34-for- 40 passing for 355 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo hauled in 12 catches for 210 yards and one score while wide receiver Ervin Philips matched the program record with 14 catches for 87 yards and a touchdown. The Orange will look to that trio as well as Steve Ishmael and their stable of running backs to generate even more offense if they want to keep pace with Lamar Jackson and Louisville.

After that, leave your pre-, in- and post-first half comments below. G'ORANGE!
