Syracuse vs Wagner Game Preview

Why Wagner Will Win

The Seahawks might be having their share of issues, but they’re not screwing up.

Penalties aren’t an issue over the first three games, there hasn’t been a lost fumble, and the four interceptions are mostly because the offense has to keep throwing to try getting back in games.

Syracuse turned the ball over four times in the close win over Virginia, penalties have been a huge issue, and …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Syracuse Will Win

Syracuse should be able to put this away fast.

Wagner has defensive problems on third down, the offense doesn’t do much of anything right, and scoring has been like pulling teeth with just seven points in each of the last two games and just ten points in the second half so far this year.

Syracuse will use this to tune up with a BRUTAL slate coming up next – NC State, at Clemson, Notre Dame at Pitt, Florida State, at Wake Forest …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Get going, get the win, get the stars on the sidelines as soon as humanly possible.

The Orange won’t have to work too hard to get to 5-0, but they won’t do anything special after the first few drives.

The Seahawks will struggle to score against the Syracuse twos and threes – Rutgers beat them 66-7 a few weeks ago – and there won’t be any drama.

There are two weeks off before the ACC season kicks back in, so the Orange coaching staff will keep the main guys in for a half and coast from there.

Virginia vs Syracuse Game Preview

Why Virginia Will Win

The offense hasn’t cranked it up yet.

The parts are there. Brennan Armstrong is a good veteran quarterback who has been just okay, but the explosion isn’t there – there’s more this group can do.

It’s going to show up at some point, but it might not need to if the grinding running game can hit the 240-yard mark like it did in two of the first three games.

On the other side, Syracuse might be 3-0, and it might have a passing game now, but the ground attack that was so devastating last season has been just okay.

The Orange D has been awful on third downs, the 30 penalties in three games are too many, and …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Syracuse Will Win

Virginia has a big, BIG problem with turnovers.

The eight giveaways spread out over the first three games have been part of the reason why the offense with all the high-powered talent has stalled.

The O line hasn’t been great, third down conversions have been like pulling teeth, and this isn’t the team to be playing against right now if everything isn’t working.

Syracuse is playing with some serious swag. It came out and rocked Louisville, didn’t panic late against Purdue, and it’s getting a hugely efficient passing year out of Garrett Shrader to do along with the running Sean Tucker, who hasn’t gotten going yet.

It also helps that …

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Zero. That’s how many turnovers the Orange have given up so far.

That’s going to change relatively soon – expect two giveaways in this – but the team isn’t giving teams easy chances, and at the moment, Virginia needs them.

At some point the Cavalier offense will start to roll. Syracuse’s offense, though, will set too high a bar in this.

Purdue vs Syracuse Game Preview

Why Purdue Will Win

Teams are hitting their passes against the Syracuse secondary.

There might not be a ton of production, but the midrange throws have been there for the taking with Louisville and UConn combining to connect on 79% of their passes.

Welcome to Purdue.

Aidan O’Connell and the Boilermakers tuned-it up last week with a nearly perfect performance in the 56-0 scrimmage against Indiana State. The passing game wasn’t sharp against Penn State, but it went for 365 yards. Now, if O’Connell can be consistent on the short throws and the offense can control third downs, it’ll keep the Orange O on the sidelines.

Time of possession will matter here. Syracuse is dominating the clock so far, and Purdue has no problem playing that game.

CFN Expert Picks, Week 3

Why Syracuse Will Win

Check out the new look Syracuse offense that’s throwing the ball now.

RB Sean Tucker is still the star, but Garrett Shrader has been terrific hitting 79% of his passes for 529 yards and five scores in easy wins over Louisville and UConn.

Penn State’s Sean Clifford didn’t exactly carve up the Boilermaker secondary, but he came up big when he needed to – he finished with over 300 yards and four scores.

The Orange are balanced now, they have yet to turn the ball over, and they should be able to generate enough of a pass rush to at least bother O’Connell.

Week 3 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Really, how good is Syracuse?

The Louisville game was a stunner, and UConn is UConn. This is going to be the better indicator.

Purdue will get enough out of the run defense to keep Tucker from going off, and Shrader will be pressured just enough to matter.

Syracuse will be the story after its start, but Purdue will come away with a good win in a fun back-and-forth game that will come down to the final few drives.

Syracuse vs UConn Game Preview

Why Syracuse Will Win

Well that worked.

Syracuse changed up the offense a bit, went to more of a balanced attack, and the defense came up with a terrific performance in the somewhat stunning 31-7 win over Louisville.

RB Sean Tucker is a given – he ran 21 times for 100 yards and a score – but it was QB Garrett Shader who took his game up a few notches with a brilliant 18-of-25 passing day for 236 yards and two scores, and with 94 rushing yards and a touchdown.

And UConn won’t be able to stop any of it.

The Huskies came up with a nice win over Central Connecticut last week, and it wasn’t awful in the loss to Utah State. But the defensive front is going to have a tough time, and the offense can’t turn the ball over three times like it did against the Blue Devils. But …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 2

Why UConn Will Win

Syracuse wasn’t perfect in the opener.

It didn’t turn the ball over, but the 18 penalties kept the game from being easier than it turned out to be.

And yes, UConn is playing better. There’s a stronger ground game with Nathan Carter running well over the first two games. The team overall has been sharper under new head coach Jim Mora Jr., and the defense really is playing well enough to not get steamrolled.

Syracuse was able to pull away from Louisville partly because it was +3 in turnover margin – UConn can make this interesting if it’s perfect.

Week 2 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Syracuse is going to air out the passing attack a little bit this week, too.

The less running Tucker and Shrader do, the better – Purdue is up next before the ACC season start.

UConn will play well in the first quarter and hang around early into the second half, but the Syracuse offense will own the clock and the game from then on.

Louisville vs Syracuse Game Preview

Why Louisville Will Win

The Cardinal offense should be balanced and should be able to explode at times.

Malik Cunningham is the signature star looking to make a big early splash, but Louisville is more than the dual-threat playmaker. The passing game will be better this season, but it’s the ground attack going against a green Orange front three that should control the game at times.

The Cardinals have a deep group of backs behind a line that gets four starters back and should once again be among the best in the ACC in pass protection. Give Cunningham time to work, and look out.

However …

Week 1 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Syracuse Will Win

The Louisville defensive front decent isn’t going to be a rock, and here comes the Syracuse ground game.

The pass rush should work fine against an always leaky Syracuse offensive front, but even with a slew of improvements and tweaks, the Cardinals are going to get bashed on by the teams that can run.

The 1-2 punch of All-America RB Sean Tucker and bruising QB Garrett Shrader were held in check in the 41-3 loss to the Cardinals last year – one of the Louisville’s best performances of the season – but get ready for a much different look at home. The two rushing stars are about to bash away.

Week 1 Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews, Saturday

What’s Going To Happen

This is one of those tone-setting games for both teams that each must have. There are too many landmines along the way to each one to assume six wins without getting one here.

Louisville was brilliant in last year’s win with Cunningham throwing for four scores and running for another, and he’ll be electric again. The difference this time around will be the more effective Syracuse offense that will control the clock and the game from the start.

It’ll be a back-and-forth fight, but the steady will push back over the sensational.

Sun Belt Preseason Predictions For Every Game: Preview 2022

Sun Belt predictions for every team and every game in the 2022 college football season

The Sun Belt just got a whole lot more interesting with the addition of Marshall, Old Dominion, and Southern Miss from Conference USA – and getting them a year before it seemed possible – and also brought in FCS powerhouse James Madison to a be a part of the fun.

The divisions are staying for now, but the great additions will make it far, far tougher for Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, and Louisiana to keep on dominating – even though they might not take that big a step back, if any.

While it might seem a bit cut-and-dry with the way the league is set up, watch out for some potentially big moves from some teams that struggled. The problem will be the schedules for Troy, South Alabama, and Arkansas State. Georgia State and Old Dominion programs that got to bowl games last season will have to fight, too.

The Sun Belt is stronger than ever and the season should be the best yet. The Sun Belt predictions for 2022 are …
