Syracuse Lacrosse: Moving up the polls

Syracuse grabs a few spots in the polls after Saturday’s takedown of Binghamton.

The Syracuse Orange move up in each poll after putting up huge numbers against the Binghamton Bearcats last week. With the Virginia Cavaliers beating Loyola in a thriller, every ACC team is now in each poll. It wasn’t all good news this week, however, as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish took a hit for its poor defensive showing in a 10-7 win over Detroit.

It’s still early in the season and not every team has played a game yet, so take these rankings with a grain of salt.

If you are looking for some good games this week, Friday features a top five matchup between the Duke Blue Devils and Denver Pioneers. We get a few good tilts on Saturday with Johns Hopkins-Loyola, Villanova-Yale, Rutgers-Army, and of course Syracuse-Albany.
