Fouls and offensive inefficiency plague the Orange in its second defeat.

In a game that needed overtime to yield a victor, Syracuse fell 2-1 to Atlantic Coast Conference rival Louisville Friday night, snapping an eight-game win streak.

The Orange (12-2-0, 4-2-0 ACC) boasts one of the premier back lines in the nation, having allowed only three goals coming into the contest. Friday, however, marked the first the time team yielded more than two goals this year.

On a humid Saturday night in front of 76,802 fans, the largest crowd ever for a college football game at MetLife Stadium, the Orange sputtered midway through its contest with the No. 8 Fighting Irish and fell 31-15.

SU faces the defending national champion Saturday night.

Although undefeated through four games, Syracuse still believes it has something to prove.

Especially with the defending NCAA champion coming to town.

With Notre Dame scheduled to invade SU Soccer Stadium on Saturday, the Orange is hoping to open its second Atlantic Coast Conference slate with a statement victory.

"They're a big team coming in here, and they're going to be a big test for us overall," senior defender Chris Makowski said. "We have to show them and the ACC that we are a good team, and we mean business."

Coach Jim Boeheim credited the win over the ACC foe to the Orange’s nonstop effort on defense.

When it came to the ACC, the Orange knew it would have to compete with plenty of new faces. But the big question was how it would fare against the conference’s blue blood programs.

On Saturday, the No. 2 Syracuse (16-0, 3-0) passed the first of those tests with authority, defeating North Carolina (10-6,0-3) 57-45.

However, Boeheim is the first to do it while coaching at only one school.
