Coming into this one, we figured it was going to be a battle between the struggling Syracuse Orange and the similarly winded Boston College Eagles. Instead, we got what looked like a shootout, and then turned into a blowout. Boston College ended up waxing Syracuse, 58-27.
You knew the run defense would struggle right form the jump as SU’s front struggled to lay much of a finger on A.J. Dillon. Instead of adjusting, that wound up being a harbinger of worse results to come. On Saturday, the Orange wound up allowing the most rushing yards in school history, surpassing the previous high of 457 by West Virginia back in 2006.
