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.
