The Syracuse defense forced turnovers that resulted in Orange touchdowns on Duke’s first three third quarter possessions in Syracuse’s victory against Duke at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday night.

The win gives Syracuse head coach Dino Babers a victory in his 100th career game as a collegiate head coach.

PREVIEW:

The last time the Orange played a football game at Duke the year was 1939 and Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president.

Much has changed since then and Syracuse (3-6, 0-5 ACC) looks to put its best foot forward when it returns to Durham, North Carolina for the first time in 80 years to face the Blue Devils (4-5, 2-3 ACC) on Saturday at Wallace Wade Stadium. Both sides have struggled of late. The Orange have lost four in a row, while Duke has dropped its last three.

Head coach Dino Babers knows if the Orange are to make a run at a second consecutive bowl berth they must be focused on the task at hand.

“We’re not looking further than anything other than trying to play a lot better than what we have been against Duke this week,” head coach Dino Babers said during his Monday press conference.
