Syracuse still unbeaten after 30-7 thrashing of Florida State (full coverage)

Syracuse football entered its ACC opener against Florida State knowing it’d be a major measuring stick after a 2-0 start.

It found out by halftime it would learn much more, namely, if it was ready to win without Eric Dungey, a situation that may change the scope of the entire season after a 30-7 victory against the Seminoles on Saturday afternoon at the Carrier Dome — its first win over Florida State since 1966. more

The Orange (2-0) open the Atlantic Coast Conference portion of their 2018 schedule Saturday, hosting Atlantic Division rival Florida State (1-1) in their first league matchup of the season. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPN.

“Florida State, you get excited for a game like that,” head coach Dino Babers said while addressing the media at his weekly press conference Monday inside the Iocolano-Petty Football Complex. “They are really, really talented.
