The Syracuse Orange appear close to a breakthrough in Dino Babers' third season. Led by a high-powered offense, Syracuse should be in the mix for its first bowl bid since 2013. When healthy, quarterback Eric Dungey is among the best in the ACC. However, Dungey has struggled to stay in the lineup in each of the last three years. If Dungey is sidelined again, Babers has a capable insurance policy in talented redshirt freshman Tommy DeVito. In addition to keeping Dungey healthy, Babers has to replace his top two receivers from last season, develop more consistency out of the ground attack and improve a defense that allowed 32.2 points per game in 2017. Concerns remain with a revamped linebacker unit, but an improved line and secondary should help the defense take a step forward.
