Syracuse men's soccer head coach Ian McIntyre: "Every game ends in 90 minutes, but to conceive in the final minute is a tough one."

Up to the final minute of the game between the Clemson Tigers and Syracuse Orange, it was equal. The Orange held tempo for most of the first half but were unable to score, and by the second, the No. 4 Tigers (11-1-2, 4-1-1 ACC) crept back in.

Central Michigan overcame a 14-point second-half deficit but could only muster a field goal in overtime before allowing Syracuse's game-winning touchdown.

Syracuse blew a 14-point lead in Saturday afternoon’s game against Central Michigan, and after not reaching first down in all of the second half, managed to score a touchdown in overtime to improve to 3-0 on the season. It’s the best start for the Orange since 1991, when they finished 10-2 under coach Pasqualoni. Following the 30-27 victory, head coach Scott Shafer had nothing but adulation for his team.

The first ACC match of the season concluded as a 1-1 tie with the Louisville Cardinals.

An evenly played match between the Syracuse Orange and Louisville Cardinals ended after double overtime in a 1-1 draw. Both ACC (3-1-1, 0-0-1 ACC) teams scored in the first half of a brisk Friday night that was unable to produce a victor, perhaps rightfully so.

"It was two honest teams that canceled each other out," Syracuse Head Coach Ian McIntyre said. "A fair result."

With immigration being widely discussed, ROTC students maintain their pride for their homelands, while serving the U.S.

During his first year in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps, Moyan Dong crawled through the snow in civilian clothes for a training exercise for two hours. While his fellow cadets wore their official ROTC gear during the exercise, the U.S. military does not issue the gear to cadets without U.S. citizenship, like Dong. By the end of the exercise, his jacket was frozen solid.

“‘Dong is hardcore,’” the sophomore at Syracuse University remembered a sergeant saying after the exercise.
