GameThread: Syracuse Orange (8-3) vs. Boston College Eagles (7-4)

Still quite a bit at stake for Syracuse here.

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Clemson Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

The hope is by now that you’ve recovered from Thanksgiving — and that the No. 19 Syracuse Orange (8-3, 5-2) have also recovered from last week’s loss. We still don’t know if Eric Dungey will be able to go in this one or not. But either way, a win over the rival Boston College Eagles (7-4, 4-3) almost certainly means a Camping World Bowl trip.

BC’s favored by a touchdown at home; a line which is almost definitely influenced by the uncertainty around Dungey. An over/under of 58.5 points seems low for a Syracuse game, but as we saw last week, it’s possible.

Kickoff is at noon ET from Chestnut Hill, Mass. — or ESPN/WatchESPN for those of us at home.

As you’re waiting for things to get started, here’s some last-minute reading material:
