Of course, TNIAAM is the only site you read. But surprisingly, other sites write about college football as well. Each week, we’ll take a look at what those other college football media sites are saying about the Syracuse Orange.


It’s David Hale’s week to post the ACC Power Rankings and he has Syracuse 8th behind the Duke Blue Devils and in front of the Miami-Florida Hurricanes.

In this week’s SP+ rankings Syracuse moves up ten spots to 65th with the offense up a couple of spots to 72nd in the SP+ while the defense moves up to 65th after a dominating performance.

Chris Carlson drops Syracuse one spot to eighth in his ACC Power Rankings this week placing them right behind the Florida State Seminoles.

“Any reason for major optimism lies with Dino Babers’ statement that the team’s new quarterback and growing offensive line will show some cohesion around six weeks into the season and the Orange can pick up their play.”

CBS Sports’ 1-130 keeps Syracuse is up one spot to 55th this week between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Lousiana Ragin’ Cajuns.

The Athletic kept the Orange in the 59th spot in their Top 130 Power Rankings in between the BYU Cougars and Nebraska Cornhuskers. Bye Week is ranked 131st this week.
