Syracuse offense comes alive in first win of season over Colgate (full coverage)

Syracuse extended the nation’s longest winning streak by one team over another as they knocked off Colgate 72-54 or their first win of the season. It was the 54th consecutive win for the Orange over the Raiders. Syracuse led by only six at the half, but used a 15-3 run to start the second half to put the game away.

Coming off of a 14 point loss to Virginia in the season opener in which they only scored 34 points, the lowest under Jim Boehiem, this was a much needed win against a good Colgate team that is predicted to win the Patriot League or the second straight season.
