They Syracuse Orange lost to the Liberty Flames today, by a score of 38-21. There’s nothing about that statement that sounds good from a Syracuse fan’s standpoint. Syracuse gave up 520 yards of offense, including 338 on the ground.
What needed to be an improved run defense, didn’t impress.
This week was another poor showing from Tony White’s defensive scheme against the run. From the get-go, the Orange were gashed up the middle, including a 75-yard run right off the bat from Liberty’s Shedro Louis. That wasn’t the only big run on the day, and not the only big run from Louis, as Peytton Pickett and Malik Willis both had runs of over 15 yards on the day as well.
