Week 4 – Sept. 26: Away @ Syracuse, Carrier Dome Syracuse, New York

Usually when teams head to the Carrier Dome to take on the Orange during the regular season, the focus of the practices leading up to the game is dealing with the noise the crowd creates in support for Syracuse trying to throw off their opponents.

For the Tigers, that will not be an issue. It won’t even be a blip on their radar in preparation for the Orange.

Already having played two home games in Death Valley, arguably the hardest stadium for opposing teams to travel to in the nation, the Tigers will have no problem dealing with the noise.

The teams have split the two all-time meetings. The Orange took the last meeting in 1989, winning the Hall of Fame Bowl 23-10.

The Tigers will win this game by at least three touchdowns.

Record after week four: 4-0
