Bailey Hockman hit Emeka Emezie with a 26-yard go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter and connected with Thayer Thomas for three more scores through the air and North Carolina rallied to defeat Syracuse 36-29 Saturday. The win was the third straight for the Wolfpack (7-3, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) and the seventh consecutive loss for the Orange (1-9, 1-8).
Josh Black never envisioned his redshirt senior year at Syracuse would be like this - only one win and six consecutive losses heading into the final two games of the season. The next chance comes Saturday in the Carrier Dome against North Carolina State (6-3, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Syracuse (1-8, 1-7), coming off a 30-0 loss at Louisville, hasn't had a season this bad since it finished 1-10 in 2005 under Greg Robinson.
The Syracuse Orange are back at it again after a tough battle with the Bye Week Fightin’ Byes. It’s all but certain that the Orange suit up on Friday for their only primetime game of the season with a 7 p.m. ET kickoff against the Louisville Cardinals.
