Syracuse vs. Pitt: Five things to watch (gameday preview)

The Syracuse Orange (2-3, 0-1) return home after two weeks away to face teh Pittsburgh Panthers (2-3, 0-1) on homecoming. You can call it Orange Central if you’d like, but we certainly won’t based on principle alone.

Last these two non-rivals met, they were setting an FBS scoring record. While SU’s defense may have improved since then, I’m not sure that Pitt’s has. Either way, both teams are desperate for a win here to keep postseason hopes alive.

So what should we be focused on going into Syracuse’s game against the Panthers this Saturday? Here are five things courtesy of NunesMagician.com…
