The Holy Cross Crusaders and the Syracuse Orange will meet up on the college football circuit Saturday.
Holy Cross comes in here at 1-2 so far. The Crusaders took out New Hampshire in their second game but otherwise fell to Navy and Yale.
In the Yale loss, Holly Cross QB Connor Degenhardt logged 145 yards and one TD, with Spencer Gilliam leading the receivers on 49 yards. Jordan Forrest posted 64 yards on five carries as well.
Over on the Syracuse side, they’re 2-2 this season. The Orange have fallen to Maryland and Clemson but taken out Liberty and Western Michigan.
In the WMU win, Syracuse QB Tommy Devito had 287 yards with four touchdowns, and Moe Neal rushed for 123 yards and two scores. Trishton Jackson led the receivers there on 141 yards and two scores.
The Orange are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games after posting more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and the under is 5-1 in their last six after posting more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.
Syracuse is also 6-1 ATS in their last seven after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.
There’s not a lot to like about Holy Cross right now. Their defense is just “meh,” while their offense is pretty stagnant.
Syracuse isn’t a big-time powerhouse quite yet, but I think they can certainly get the job done here. I’m going Orange.
