Syracuse Orange News
9-16-14: The Syracuse Orange played in the second game of the young college football season this week when the team traveled to Central Michigan to take on the Chippewas in Kelly Shorts Stadium. The Orange dominated this game from whistle to whistle and won the game by the score of 40-3 after scoring 40 unanswered points off the Chippewa’s defense. Central Michigan’s defense actually held the Syracuse offense scoreless in the first quarter before allowing six touchdowns, a field goal, and a safety for the Orange. Syracuse had 464 yards of total offense including 289 yards on the ground as the team controlled the clock and the ball for much of the game. The Orange did not have a turnover in the game and even went 2-2 on fourth down attempts in the game. Syracuse nearly had a pair of 100 yard rushers in the game when Adonis Ameen-Moore had nine carries for 106 yards and Terrel Hunt had 13 carries for 92 yards in the contest. Syracuse’s kicker Ryan Norton missed two field goal attempts in the game so the score could have been a lot worse for the Chippewas.
