The #OrangeEagle rivalry returns

That’s right, baby. It’s your boys (#FakeNunes) and we’re back to bring you the only weekly preview you didn’t know you needed, but actually do need because without it you wouldn’t be ready for a Syracuse Orange gameday.... or something like that. It’s Rivalry Week so let’s get ready to retain the #OrangeEagle. What’s that? There’s no more competition because BC couldn’t compete...well we don’t believe in quitting so the trophy lives on in our minds.

Opponent: Boston College Eagles

Location: Not in Boston, Mass

Students: 14,600

The 2019 Fake Nunes Statistical Index (#FNSI)

Once again we bring you categories that no other preview will give you because that’s what we do best.


Syracuse might tell us what they’re wearing before kick-off, but if not we’ll assume it’s orange helmet, blue jersey and orange pants.

BC’s road uniforms will look like this with maybe gold pants instead of white.

Advantage: Push. These teams are on the same level as far as tradition with a modern twist goes.

Strength & Conditioning Coach Last Man Standing Match:

Something new for this year is to compare the two S&C coaches and tell you which one would win a Last Man Standing match. This week it’s Sean Edinger against Scott McLafferty and honestly we’d rather just have him step aside and let Spencer Reid have a go at Edinger.

Advantage: Edinger because McLafferty looks like an operations guy not a strength coach

Football Program Hashtag:

#OITNF vs #WeAreBC

Well at least you can’t argue with one of these hashtags this season.

Advantage: BC because well they are in fact BC

Pop Culture Alum: Each week we’ll compare alums who are relevant in pop culture

Matt Ryan vs Diamond Ferri

The game that coined the phrase “Sombrero Sadness” as BC’s Fiesta Bowl dreams were destroyed by the Everett, Mass native.

Advantage: Syracuse

Overly Optimistic SU Fan Prediction from MrSUFootball

If you see @MrSUFootball at the Dome on Saturday be sure to give him a high-five and talk tell him how Miles Robinson needs to stay with the USMNT.

While his Four Downs of Reasoning still remains on hiatus, MrSU Football sent us another video to get ready for this week’s game with this caption “Forget AJ Dillon or Doug Flutie. The only Eagle Syracuse fans should be impressed with is this man right here”

The Official #FakeNunes Game Prediction:

One team can’t play defense. One team can’t play offense. Who do you go with when the Resistable Force meets the Movable Object? This game is going to be tied late when Syracuse inserts Andre Cisco into the backfield on a 3rd and long. Cisco takes a screen pass and weaves his way for a 44-yard game setting up a game winning FG from Andre Szmyt.
