SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) The first game of his tenure at Syracuse is in the books, and Dino Babers has the Orange on the right track. Not getting derailed in Week 2 is another matter.

Syracuse (1-0) hosts No. 13 Louisville (1-0) on Friday night in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams, and the Cardinals, with versatile quarterback Lamar Jackson leading the way, are certainly a big step up from FCS Colgate.

Jackson is coming off a record-setting performance in the season opener against Charlotte, a 70-14 blitz in which he only played the first half and still accounted for a stunning 405 yards and eight touchdowns.

Dino Babers donned an orange tie for the special occasion and promised big things at his formal introduction as the 30th head football coach at Syracuse.

"I'm hoping that I can be embraced into the city and the state of New York because I really believe special things are going to happen here," the 54-year-old Babers said Monday. "I really believe that we're going to start something that people are going to be talking about for a long, long time."

The Orange lured Babers away from Bowling Green on Saturday, a day after his Falcons won the Mid-American Conference championship game. Babers has gone 18-9 in two seasons at Bowling Green and brings a fast-paced, Baylor-style offense to the Carrier Dome.
