SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- It's been a month since Syracuse coach Dino Babers delivered a stirring postgame locker room speech that went viral on social media after the most important victory of his first year with the Orange.
But since that upset win over then-No. 17 Virginia Tech, "Our house!" has become "Their house." Syracuse lost its next home game - 35-20 last week to North Carolina State to fall to 2-3 in the Carrier Dome. Now, the Orange have a chance to reclaim their house and send their seniors out with a victory when they close their home schedule on Saturday against No. 17 Florida State (7-3, 4-3 ACC, No. 17 CFP).
It's an important game for both teams.
