Back in 2016, the Syracuse Orange football team was 2-4 and in desperate need of a win against the No. 17 Virginia Tech Hokies at the Dome. SU came away with the win, grabbed another against BC... and then proceeded to lose four straight to end the year. A lot has changed since then, of course.
This time around, both teams are hovering around .500 with coaches potentially on the hotseat. A win for either would at least appear as if they were righting the ship. So yeah, let’s hope Syracuse is the benefit of said appearance.
