The Orange offense was once again stuck in neutral through much of the annual scrimmage event.

Syracuse football fans got their first look at the 2015 Orange squad at the Carrier Dome on Saturday during the program's annual "spring game."

Although there was no game clock or score kept during the course of the event, more than 4,000 fans were treated to an afternoon of activity, including free hot dogs and post-game "selfie stations" on the field with players and coaches.

Here are a few nuggets from a busy afternoon at the Dome:

Hunt's Catch-up

SU is now eliminated from bowl contention for the first time since 2011.

The Carrier Dome hasn’t been kind to the Syracuse Orange this season.

Hoping to keep its postseason hopes alive against Duke on Saturday, the Orange instead dropped its third straight game, 27-10, in front of 39,331 fans on Senior Day. SU will finish 1-5 at the Dome and out of the bowl picture.

Additionally, Scott Shafer is making significant changes to his staff.

Syracuse will face the No. 1 team in the country Saturday, but it will have to do so without one of its best offensive weapons.

Quarterback Terrel Hunt, who left during the fourth quarter of Friday's loss to Louisville, has a fractured fibula in his left leg and will miss 4-6 weeks according to a press release from Syracuse Athletics.

Hunt leads the Orange with six rushing touchdowns this season and has also thrown for 983 yards.

Austin Wilson, one of four quarterbacks to play Saturday, scored two second-half touchdowns to push the Offense past the defense.

It wasn’t quite football on Saturday at the Carrier Dome, but for the 4,071 fans in attendance who sat through a very long winter, the 2014 SU Football Spring Game was enough. The Offense beat the Defense, 34-27, thanks to two second-half touchdown passes from sophomore quarterback Austin Wilson.

A few key starters return, but a fierce five-way quarterback competition headlines the beginning of preseason.

With only 26 days left until the season opener at MetLife Stadium against Penn State, Syracuse’s first football season in the ACC is almost here. This season will also mark Scott Shafer’s first as a head coach. Since 2009, Shafer served as the defensive coordinator for the Orange. And last season, Shafer’s defensive unit ranked seventh in the nation.

“Everyone is going to be excited day one,” Shafer said. “It’s always fun when you open up camp because the kids are fired up and ready to go.”
