- Syracuse takes on Clemson in South Carolina on Saturday night
Clemson, South Carolina (SportsNetwork.com) - The 21st-ranked Clemson Tigers welcome the Syracuse Orange to Death Valley on Saturday for Homecoming at Memorial Stadium.
Dabo Swinney's Tigers remain within striking distance in the ACC's Atlantic Division at 6-1 overall and 4-1 in league play. Clemson's lone loss on the season was a 23-17 overtime setback at Florida State, but the Tigers have righted the ship with wins in four straight games since, including last weekend's 17-13 victory at Boston College.
Scott Shafer's Orange are sitting one game under .500 with a 3-4 overall record. Syracuse is just 1-2 in league play, but did secure that lone ACC win with last weekend's 30-7 rout of Wake Forest in Winston-Salem. The win brought an end to a four-game slide for Syracuse, after opening the season with two consecutive wins.
This is just the third meeting between these two teams, with each program winning once. Clemson tied things up with last year's 49-14 rout at Syracuse.
Thanks to a pair of defensive touchdowns, Syracuse was able to distance itself from the Demon Deacons and finally get back into the win column. Despite the offense generating just over 400 yards of offense per game, a great deal of that production was accomplished with quarterback Terrel Hunt under center. The veteran dual threat however, is done for the season due to injury, paving the way for youngsters A.J. Long and Mitch Kimble to see time under center, neither of which are as savvy as Hunt.
Regardless of who is throwing the football, the top target in the passing game remains Jarrod West, who leads the team in receptions (29) and receiving yards (421).
A potent ground game that relied on Hunt's running, now must lean more heavily on tailbacks Prince-Tyson Gulley (418 yards, 1 TD) and Adonis Ameen-Moore (276 yards, 1 TD). Junior Devante McFarlane is coming off a career-high 114 yards against Wake and adds yet another dimension the to Orange backfield.
Big plays like the ones against Wake Forest need to come with more frequency the rest of the way, with the offense at less than full strength. Syracuse is holding foes to a respectable 357.4 yards per game.
Linebacker Cameron Lynch headlines the defense for Syracuse, and is playing as well as any linebacker in the conference, with 53 total tackles, 6.5 TFL, 5.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one safety to his credit. Help comes in the form of safety Durell Eskridge (35 tackles, 1 INT, 1 FR) and Marquez Hodge (28 tackles, 5.5 TFL, 3.0 sacks).
The Tigers are still getting it done at a high rate on offense this season, despite losing key pieces to the puzzle. The team is averaging 440.1 yards per game.
Like Syracuse, Clemson has also fallen victim to injuries on the offensive side of the football, as talented young gun slinger Deshaun Watson is out indefinitely with a hand injury, while leading tailback Adam Choice (218 yards, 1 TD) was recently lost for the season with a knee injury.
Offensive coordinator Chad Morris specifically addressed the backfield woes this week.
"It's been really unfortunate for our backfield, losing Zac (Brooks) and Adam for the season," Morris said. "We've had some frustration. But hey, that's football. You've got to go play."
The good news for Clemson is that the team has a veteran to call on at quarterback with senior Cole Stoudt stepping in. Stoudt has started four games this season and has completed almost 62 percent of his passes, for 934 yards and one TD.
Receiving depth comes in the form of freshman Artavis Scott (38 rec, 443 yds, 3 TDs) and sophomore Mike Williams (30 rec, 671 yds, 4 TDs).
There aren't many defenses in the nation as talent-rich as Clemson is. The Tigers have playmakers at every level, resulting in impressive numbers across the board. The front seven is particularly stout, with a devastating pass rush that has amassed 267 sacks thus far.
All-American Vic Beasley is once again making plays upfield. Of his 18 total tackles, 10.5 have come behind the line of scrimmage, including eight sacks. Linebacker Stephone Anthony (team-high 52 tackles, 7.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks), defensive tackle Grady Jarrett (35 tackles) and safety Jayron Kearse (43 tackles) have to be accounted for as well.
The Orange will struggle in Death Valley to match Clemson score for score. The Tigers will likely pin their ears back and come for Syracuse's young signal callers and that could spell a long day for the Orange.
- Report: SU to Meet With NCAA Oct. 30-31
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- An ESPN report
says both the men's basketball and football programs at Syracuse University are under investigation by the NCAA. The allegations against SU reportedly go back at least ten years and include providing extra benefits to student-athletes and academic issues.
ESPN is reporting SU will meet with the NCAA's Committee on Infractions October 30-31 at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis, IN.
Per ESPN's report, most of the allegations -- including the most serious ones -- involve the Orange men's basketball team. Those issues reportedly go back at least ten years, and include seasons as recently as 2013.
The SU football team is apparently also being looked at for possibly providing extra benefits for a short time period, but not since Doug Marrone took over as head coach in 2009.
A report from Syracuse.com
said part of the basketball investigation involved the academic record of former center Fab Melo.
Head men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim declined to address the NCAA investigation during his team's Media Day on Oct. 17.
Syracuse University issued a statement saying "As we have said before, we are working closely and cooperatively with the NCAA as part of an inquiry. We respect and are honoring the NCAA process and look forward to a resolution."
- Report: SU football involved in NCAA inquiry
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The Syracuse University football team is involved in a reported NCAA inquiry into the school’s athletics program, according to a local media report.
The reported inquiry has largely been associated with the basketball program, but Syracuse.com
said in a Thursday afternoon update sources say the football program is also part of the investigation.
They said it was unclear whether other athletics programs were involved in the investigation.
Last week, Syracuse.com reported that university officials were invited to an NCAA hearing.
NewsChannel 9 WSYR reached out to the Syracuse athletics department Thursday. As of 5:00, the school had not responded.

- SU won?t host the Irish at the Dome until 2022, according to new ACC, Notre Dame schedule
yracuse (WSYR-TV) – The Syracuse University football team will face Notre Dame twice in the next four years, but neither contest will be in the Carrier Dome.
According to a joint ACC-Notre Dame schedule, SU won’t host the Fighting Irish again until 2022.
The Orange will play Notre Dame at MetLife Stadium in 2016 and travel to South Bend in 2018.
Notre Dame has committed to playing five ACC games per year as the Irish tries to balance its conference affiliation with a traditional independent slate.
After the 2022 meeting in Syracuse, the Orange will next play Notre Dame when they travel to South Bend in 2025.
The complete list of Notre Dame/ACC matchups is available on CUSE.com
