Syracuse blows opportunities as #1 Clemson rolls to 41-6 win (full coverage)

The mistakes started early for the Syracuse Orange against the Clemson Tigers. And despite all of the self-inflicted wounds in the first half (65 penalty yards, drops, etc.), they were still down just 17-6 at the break and got the ball to start the third quarter.

Syracuse would wind up losing 41-6, in a game that looked a lot more one-sided on the scoreboard than it actually was on the field. But they really only have themselves to blame for that, repeatedly failing to take advantage of the chances put in front of them.

PREVIEW:

A sold-out crowd is expected when the Syracuse University football team hosts No. 1 Clemson in the Dome on Saturday (7:30 pm, ABC). A full slate of activities is planned for fans, including pre-game entertainment and the honoring of Orange All-American and Rhodes Scholar finalist Tim Green with his jersey retirement.

The halftime celebration of Green, Syracuse’s all-time sacks leader, is one of many planned during the game. During the first quarter the Orange 1959 national championship team will be honored and U.S. Army Colonel (retired) and World War II veteran Dr. Larry Myers will be recognized as the Hometown Hero. Myers is a Syracuse University graduate and a retired faculty member. In the second quarter, fans are invited to participate in the 360-degree megapixel photo that will be taken from the 50-yard line.
