After a spectacular victory last weekend at Purdue, Dan Enos and the Chippewas look to start their season 3-0 when they face the Syracuse out of the ACC. The Orange are 1-0 early in the season and are coming off a bye week.
For the first time in a while, the Chippewas are experiencing significant success in their out of conference schedule. After an uncomfortably close victory at home over Chattanooga, the Chippewas dominated Purdue from start to finish for their second victory over a Big Ten team in three years. The Chippewas are hoping to add back star receiver Titus Davis, who missed last week's victory over the Boilermakers.
Syracuse had its own shaky start to the season, escaping in double overtime against Villanova at the Carrier Dome. Led by former WMU assistant Scott Shafer, the Orange's attack features duel threat QB Terrel Hunt.
This is the second meeting between Syracuse and CMU. Syracuse leads the series 1-0.
