GAME PREVIEW:

After a battle with No. 1 Clemson in Death Valley last weekend, Syracuse returns home to host another team riding a winning streak in Wake Forest (3-2) this week. The Demon Deacons have won three-straight games after beginning the season with back-to-back losses to Clemson and NC State.

The Orange are 1-5 overall and 1-2 at home this season. Wake Forest most recently earned a top-25 win over No. 19 Wake Forest, 23-16, where freshman DB Nick Anderson was named the Walter Camp National Player of the Week following his three-interception performance against the Hokies. ‘Cuse will have to pay attention to multiple defensive standouts this week, perhaps none more than defensive end Carlos Basham Jr.
