Orange overcomes early mistakes but ultimately drops home opener, 42-41.
The Syracuse Orange completed a 22-point comeback behind a record-breaking performance from Ryan Nassib, but a late Northwestern touchdown propelled the Wildcats to a 42-41 victory.
Midway through the third quarter, the Orange found itself down 35-13. Plagued throughout the first three quarters by mental mistakes and penalties, Syracuse seemed destined for a disappointing loss. The game was far from over, though.
Chef Steve LeClair brings popular food truck craze to Syracuse with his trailer-turned-kitchen
On the first day chef Steve LeClair planned to serve food from his trailer-turned-kitchen, he hopped into his truck and drove down the driveway—pulling out the plug that had been powering the trailer’s refrigerator in anticipation of the grand opening of “Steve’s Street Eats.”
SU has again made The Princeton Review's list based on student survey about alcohol, study habits and Greek system.
For the second year in a row, Syracuse University has kept its place among The Princeton Review’s top 20 party schools list, and it has even moved up a couple notches from last year’s 12th place. This year, Syracuse is No. 10.
Syracuse's school record 15-game winning streak came to an end as the team dropped only its second game of the season
As the Orange deficit increased, the energy slowly drained out of the Carrier Dome. There were no more fans cheering, no more teammates encouraging, and the style of play turned sluggish as No. 1 seeded Syracuse struggled from the start, losing to Loyola, 13-7 in the Big East championship game on Saturday.
“Well, that didn’t quite go as planned,” Syracuse head coach Gary Gait said bluntly after the game.
The Orange become the first ever Big East tournament champions with a win over St. John's.
It was another easy day for the Orange men's lacrosse team as it cruised by the St. John's Red Storm in the inaugural Big East lacrosse tournament championship. Syracuse shut down St. John's in the first half, heading into the locker room up 7-0. The second half was a lot more relaxed. The Orange got a lot of subs into the game and ended up with a 12-4 victory.
Orange advances in the Big East women's lacrosse tournament after a Hoyas possession faltered in the games closing seconds
With three seconds left in the game, No. 16/15 Georgetown (9-8) held the ball behind the Syracuse goal. Trailing by one goal, all the Hoya’s needed to do was score to send the Big East women’s lacrosse semi-final matchup against No. 2/2 Syracuse’s (16-2) to overtime. Midfielder Hannah Franklin received the pass, but failed to get a shot off as the Orange outlasted the Hoyas in a defensive grudge-match, 7-6 in the Carrier Dome on Thursday.
The Orange dominated Villanova on its home turf in the opening round of the Big East Tournament in Philadelphia
It was a close game for the first half of the Big East Tournament semifinal, but the back-and-forth game didn't last for long. The Orange led 6-4 at the half but a nine goal second half and a scoreless fourth quarter for the Wildcats gave Syracuse a 15-6 victory.
Here are three thoughts from the game:
1. Bobby Eilers is dangerous against a short-stick...
The Orange came into South Bend with a chance to possibly clinch an NCAA Tournament berth. The team didn't play like it had anything to prove in the first half, going scoreless for the first two quarters of the game. After Notre Dame took a 4-0 lead into halftime, Syracuse lit a fire and came out strong in the second half. The bench was energized, the players were fighting for ground balls and the Orange looked like it could win the game. But the Fighting Irish fought off Syracuse and never let them cut the lead to less than one.
Syracuse couldn't battle back from a three-goal deficit to beat rival Georgetown in a Big East matchup
The motto for the Syracuse Orange lacrosse team this season is "head, heart, hustle." The Orange showed none of those three H's in today's 10-8 loss to Georgetown. A spotlight was shined on the team's seniors before the game, honoring the last time they took the field in the Carrier Dome. But that spotlight went out as soon as the first quarter began.
The Orange take home the Kraus-Simmons trophy for the sixth-straight year.
The Hobart-Syracuse rivalry dates back to 1916. The Orange lost that first game almost 100 years ago, but have controlled the series ever since. Syracuse took home the Kraus-Simmons trophy for the 71st time tonight with a 13-12 victory that came down to the final seconds. The Orange dominated the first half, taking a 10-4 lead into halftime. But a series of mistakes and some great play from the Statesmen resulted in one goal game with just nine seconds to go. The Orange won the face-off due to a Hobart violation and held on for the win.
