NCAA Football: Syracuse at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Each week, we’ll take a look at what other college football media sites are saying about the Syracuse Orange. After three straight losses, probably not a lot of good things.

AP and Coaches Poll

Syracuse dropped out of both polls this week. The Florida State Seminoles are 25th in the AP Poll so if the Orange can defend home field, maybe they sneak back in?


In this week’s SP+ rankings Syracuse drops ten spots to 58th with the offense 77th while the defense moves up to 36th. The Orange are ranked between East Carolina and James Madison. This week’s opponent, Florida State ranks 27th with their offense 38th and defense 26th.

The Football Power Index has Syracuse down four spots to 35th between NC State and Wake Forest. The FPI now predicts that the Orange will reach 7 wins this season. Florida State is 17th in FPI this week.

This week the Orange drop two to 6th in the weekly ACC rankings in between Florida State and Louisville.
