The general public is starting to get comfortable with the Tigers at this point, and for good reason. Not only did they take care of the Georgia Bulldogs in that first game of the year, but they have since won two of these games that are known as the “Clemson games” that could be lost in the team isn’t careful. QB Tajh Boyd looks the part of a Heisman Trophy contender, and this team seems like it is nine wins away from playing for the BCS National Championship and two weeks away from a Top 10 showdown at home against the Florida State Seminoles.
But oh, is this the time to be careful! Syracuse has a hungry team, and this is the first time that these Tigers are going to be playing in a dome outside of the Georgia Dome in any of their careers. RB Jerome Smith and RB Prince-Tyson Gulley are both fantastic backs, and QB Terrell Hunt has been very solid since taking over as the team’s starting quarterback. There’s a history of playing stout defense for the Orange, and if they can figure out how to do to Boyd what the NC State Wolfpack did to him holding him to just 26 points, there is a real shot at the upset. We want the points on our side in this one, and though we aren’t going to go so far as to say that this game will definitely be an upset, it will be a game that is going to be a lot closer than the NCAA football expert handicappers think.
