The Syracuse Orange (16-8, 5-6) are potentially back in business after Monday’s upset over Louisville. But in order for that win to mean anything, SU has to keep things going against lesser opponents as well. After six days’ rest, the Orange host the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (9-15, 2-10) at the Carrier Dome, in what should be considered a must-win. Wake already beat SU down in Winston-Salem earlier this year, much to our chagrin.
Everything gets started at 1 p.m. ET from the Dome. You can catch the game on your local ACC Network affiliate, or ACC Network Extra for the streamers.
Before SU tips off, though, some last-second reading for you:
