Virginia Cavaliers vs Syracuse Orange
The Syracuse Orange won 32-29 at JMA Wireless Dome on Saturday thanks to QB Garrett Shrader's 25-yard touchdown pass to Oronde Gadsden II with seven seconds remaining. Syracuse led the Boilermakers 10-9 at the half and outscored them 22-20 in the fourth quarter. Syracuse has started the season strong, winning three straight games for the first time since 2018.
The 22-year-old Shrader has passed for 709 yards and eight touchdowns for the Orange. RB Sean Tucker has 254 rushing yards and two touchdowns to lead Syracuse. With 193 yards and three touchdowns, Gadsden leads the team's receivers. Syracuse's defense has six quarterback sacks and three interceptions on the season.
Syracuse, ranked ninth in the ACC, will continue its four-game homestand against ACC foe Virginia on Friday night, with a chance to improve to 4-0 on the season. They will, however, be without starting linebacker Stefon Thompson and starting tight end Chris Elmore, who both got injured in Week 1 against the Louisville Cardinals.
On Saturday, Virginia defeated Old Dominion 16-14. The victory is attributed to a 26-yard field goal by senior kicker Brendan Farrell with a few seconds left. Despite outgaining the Monarchs 513-324, the Cavaliers coughed the ball up twice inside the Old Dominion 5-yard line.
RB Mike Hollins scored for Virginia but fumbled the ball at the four-yard line late in the first half. QB Brennan Armstrong completed 20 of 37 passes for 284 yards, including a 30-yard pass to WR Lavel Davis Jr. to start the winning drive. He also rushed for 54 yards, including a 13-yard run in the final minute to get Virginia to the opposition's 20-yard line.
CB Darrius Bratton appears to be out for Friday's game after leaving the previous game with a bone bruise and a high ankle sprain. Coen King, a senior defensive back, is also expected to miss the game after suffering an elbow injury during a preseason game.
