    Orange Lose...Again
    Drop Another Close One vs Top 25 Opponent
    Syracuse once again jumped out to an early lead against a heavily favored, but fell victim to a few miraculous plays eventually to #25 Rutgers by 6. Late in the 1st, QB Kasey Nichols connected with WR Jeremiah Kobena on an 84-yard bomb to take an early 7-0 lead, but Rutgers would take their first lead on a 27-yard FG with just 2:13 left in the half. The Orange would answer back and seemed to take all the momentum into the half after a 3-yard TD run by HB Mario Washington, but the Knights would take a 3-point lead instead after a very controversial ruling on their Hail Mary attempt as time expired. A Syracuse defender appeared to punch the ball out at the last second to make the pass incomplete, but officials ruled it as a fumble which was recovered by Rutgers in the end zone. Clearly affected by the end of the 1st Half, the Orange could only muster a TD in the 2nd Half after Rutgers built a commanding 27-14 lead.
    Next, Syracuse hosts their fellow cellar dwellers in the South Florida Bulls.

    LOL I don't know, their really inconsistent. But I think this was one of those games that you just can't win :(

    I was so pissed when they gave them that Hail Mary at the end of the half, and later in the 3rd they got a pick in the end zone after one of their LB made a superhuman play to tip the pass.
