2017 Week 2: vs Oklahoma 
Posted on December 8, 2018 at 04:14 PM.
#12 Oklahoma (0-0) @ #20 Syracuse (1-0)

Syracuse will open ACC play by hosting the 12th ranked Sooners of Oklahoma. Oklahoma has not played a game yet while Syracuse had a comfortable, if not perfect, win over lowly UNLV last week. The offense was near perfect, racking up over 500 total yards and not turning the ball over even once. The defense was a liability however and if they fail to play better against the Sooners they will not be bailed out as easily. Oklahoma could be overrated and are playing their first game of the season so they could have some rust. Syracuse pulls the upset in this top-20 battle behind the arm of DeVito.

Prediction: 44-35 Syracuse

Syracuse played a complete game en route to knocking off #12 Oklahoma. Tommy DeVito once again accounted for nearly 500 yards of offense and added two more touchdown tosses while FR HB Richard Patton had nearly 200 yards and 3 scores himself. The defense picked off Oklahoma's quarterback three times despite allowing a gaudy yardage total. Holding the Sooners to only 23 points is an accomplishment as well due to the high powered offense that this team possesses. Syracuse moves to 2-0 on the season and it wouldn't be a surprise if they find themselves in the top 15 next week after this upset victory.

Final Score: 38-23 Syracuse
