Pittsburgh vs. Syracuse Prediction and Preview

Friday night lights in New York, as Syracuse hosts Pittsburgh in the Carrier Dome. These two played a wild game at Heinz Field last year with the Panthers winning 44-37 in overtime. Both squads made a field goal in the last six minutes to send the game to the extra frame. The home team ran for 265 yards with two players going for over 100, while Eric Dungey accounted for nearly 270 all-purpose yards for the Orange.

The 2019 Syracuse team is 3-3 and has not won a game yet in ACC play, falling to Clemson and NC State. Last week, the offense was anemic in a 16-10 loss in Raleigh. Tommy DeVito clearly didn't look right in the first half but then turned it on late. Their wins have come over Liberty, Western Michigan and Holy Cross with the losses being to Maryland and the aforementioned conference opponents. This is their fourth home tilt over their last five overall, so with three of their next four on the road, this is rather important to pick up.
