Miami no easy task against Syracuse

The No. 8 Hurricanes are big favorites against Syracuse on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, ESPN/ESPN App), but the Orange remain dangerous as Clemson found out last week. Miami has won 10 straight games, the second longest active streak in the FBS. Syracuse QB Eric Dungey is third in the FBS with 2,466 passing yards.

If Cuse downs another top-10 team, the WRs will be the reason

Syracuse WRs Ervin Philips and Steve Ishmael have more combined targets than 41 other offenses this season. Their opponent this week, No. 8 Miami just allowed 344 passing yards to Toledo. It's safe to say Cuse's dynamic duo has an opportunity coming up.
