Syracuse season ends with fourth straight blowout loss (full coverage)

Zaire Franklin strolled out of the tunnel in the southwest corner of the Carrier Dome, an entrance unlike the rush he and his Syracuse teammates usually make when taking the field every home game. This time, Franklin took his time. Being the final participant in the Senior Day festivities meant he could. He glanced at every last angle of the stadium that’s housed his collegiate football career.

Franklin hugged Syracuse head coach Dino Babers. He dapped up injured quarterback Eric Dungey. He greeted his family. For the three-time captain, it appeared memorable. Everything after that wasn’t.

GAMEDAY TWEETS:


PREVIEW:

Syracuse (4-7, 2-5 ACC) will honor its Class of 2017 when the Orange host Boston College (6-5, 3-4 ACC) on Saturday, Nov. 25 in the Carrier Dome for the final game of the regular season. Kickoff is set for 12:20 p.m. and the game will air on the ACC Network.

Fifteen players and three football managers will take the field at the Loud House for the last time. The goal is to send them out the right way, according to head coach Dino Babers.

“It’s the last opportunity for those guys to step into the Dome,” said Babers. “We want to send that crew out the right way and we want everyone that comes to that game on Thanksgiving weekend to have the right experience.” Read More
