Syracuse football depth chart indicates co-starters at RB, DT vs. Wake Forest

The No. 22 Orange will head to Wake Forrest with some minor changes to the two-deep.

NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 22 Syracuse Orange (still insane) are headed to to North Carolina to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, who after a hot start have cooled off significantly. The Orange are road favorites in this one, so what’s the roster plan for the game? Here’s what we know via an updated depth chart.

Some quick thoughts:

  • We’re back to Moe Neal and Dontae Strickland as co-starters. Neither player had more than 43 yards rushing last week, and both only had one catch in the game. It’s clear that the staff doesn’t love one more than other, it’s all situational at this point.
  • As Stephen Bailey mentions, Josh Black got the start at nose tackle, McKinley Williams’s spot to date. Black got on the scoresheet with a tackle, Williams did not. Nice to have some options along a line that’s been strong so far.
  • Shyheim Cullen is getting his chance, splitting time with Andrew Armstrong. Armstrong had the pick that led to the game sealing touchdown.
