Syracuse falls to 1-5 with 47-21 loss to Clemson (full coverage)

David and Goliath is a common analogy used to describe the distance between Syracuse and Clemson in the scope of college football.

The Tigers (6-0, 5-0) entered Saturday’s game as the top-ranked team in the nation and the Orange (1-5, 1-4), albeit hindered by injuries and lack of veteran leadership, is clinging to the bottom of the ACC standings.

Both teams are on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of winning and losing. Oddsmakers favored Clemson as historic 46.5-point favorites.

The story of David and Goliath would’ve been perfect for Saturday’s game at Death Valley, but Syracuse ran out of gas in the second half and came short of knocking off the biggest giant in college football with a 47-21 loss at Clemson.
