Orange prepare to open ACC play at NC State

The Orange open ACC play on the road this weekend when they take on NC State Saturday, Sept. 30. Kickoff is at 12:20 p.m. and the game will air on the ACC Network. Syracuse looks to rebound after a 35-28 loss to LSU, during which the defense showed exceptional effort.

“It was a total defensive effort and I thought it was a fantastic game,” said head coach Dino Babers. “You may not see that in the box score but, from a coach’s standpoint, they were punching holes in the offense I thought, from a defensive standpoint, the inside players, the linebackers and the defensive line played a very aggressive game.”
