"Before we kick off at Penn State," Shafer said, "we’ll have a decision made as to who’s playing quarterback."
Both players took reps with the first- and second-team offenses throughout the afternoon, and it was about as even as it gets. Drew Allen was 10-for-18 passing, Terrel Hunt was 9-for-17. They each threw two touchdowns.

The marching band has replaced its tired, worn, and so-last-century uniforms (15 years old) with new ones. Longer jackets that are brighter with more orange, with Syracuse University's block "S" are the new look.

"Two weeks before the season, we changed the whole offense," Hackett explained before Syracuse's bowl game last winter. And the theme for all the changes could be summed up in one word: "compression." It wasn't that Marrone added a bunch of new plays, or that the changes were obvious enough that a casual fan would notice, but the entire framework of the offense did change.

Out too went the complicated NFL-style play calls, replaced with simple, one- or two-word commands that facilitated the team's new up-tempo, no-huddle pace.
Provo says Syracuse "has a rough road" ahead in the ACC.
Chibane tells Brent Axe what he thinks it will take for him to make the Bills roster and how he thinks the Syracuse football team will do this season.
It had been three years since Keita last landed on native soil. This summer, he and his youngest brother Bouna journeyed home to Africa. Baye Moussa needed to address paperwork associated with his student stay in the United States.
"My mom's probably going to go to the games, though," he said. "My nieces and nephews, too."
