We still don’t know what this Syracuse Orange football season brings in the long-term. But in the short-term, it appears to bring some poll voters to our corner.
Sunday’s Coaches Poll included 11 votes for 3-0 Syracuse, while the AP Top 25 logged two for the Orange. SU last received votes before the Florida State game in 2017. This time around, winning 30-7 over the same Seminoles (even in a down year) was enough to get voters’ attention.
There are no actual rankings past 25, but if we’re counting, Syracuse received the 37th-most votes in the Coaches Poll, and tied for 41st (with Washington State) in the AP. Unsurprisingly, there are several Orange opponents in the polls right now: Clemson (3 in AP/2 in Coaches), Notre Dame (8/8) and new entrant Boston College (23/25). Read More
