USF (2-0) vs. Syracuse (1-1) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, September 17th
Game Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: Carrier Dome, Syracuse, NY
Network: ACC Network
Somewhat quietly, South Florida has started out red hot blowing away Towson and Northern Illinois with a balanced attack that put up over 1,100 yards in the first two wins. But Towson and NIU aren’t very good, and Syracuse might just be good enough to finally provide a test.
With Florida State up next, the Bulls have a lot of work to do.
The USF defense hasn’t been pushed yet, but it hasn’t been a dominant force against the run – but that’s nitpicking. Syracuse hasn’t run at all, but with the nation’s tenth-ranked passing game, it’s got the ability to bomb away and keep up with just about anyone.
Don’t be totally fooled by the 62-28 loss to Louisville. It was a game until the fourth quarter, and then it got away from the Orange.
The front seven doesn’t have to face Lamar Jackson this week, but South Florida has enough of a running game and enough options to make Eric Dungey have to push the passing game.
The young quarterback will come through.
South Florida is good, but it hasn’t dealt with a passing game yet. The Orange have one.
