Each week, we’ll take a look at what other college football media sites are saying about the Syracuse Orange. Let’s see what things look like after the bye.
In this week’s SP+ rankings Syracuse stays in the 65th spot with the offense up a spot to 71st while the defense holds at 65th. The NC State Wolf Pack are 58th this week.
Chris Carlson keeps Syracuse eighth in his ACC Power Rankings this week placing them just ahead of this week’s opponent NC State
