Each week, we’ll take a look at what other college football media sites are saying about the Syracuse Orange. The Orange dropped their third straight game in the final minute, so let’s see what the rankings have to say this week...


In this week’s SP+ rankings Syracuse drops six places to the 58th spot with the offense 69th while the defense ranks 40th. The Orange are ranked between Marshall and Boise State this week. This week’s opponent the Virginia Tech Hokies are 52nd this week with their offense 68th and defense sitting 33rd. This one could be set up for another close defensive struggle.

The Football Power Index has Syracuse up four spots to a nice 69th between UCF and Western Michigan. Virginia Tech is 45th in this week’s FPI.

Syracuse stays at 12th in the local paper’s weekly ACC Power Rankings. The Orange are still in between UNC and Miami. Virginia Tech is ranked 9th this week.
