Failure to take advantage of their offensive chances, Orange football falls to Rutgers 23-15 in Piscataway.

There wasn’t too much positive to take out of Saturday afternoon’s 23-15 loss to No. 20 Rutgers Scarlet Knights (6-0). Turnovers were the killer for Syracuse Orange (2-4). Rutgers forced a total of five turnovers, three of which came at the hands of quarterback Ryan Nassib. 

The Orange played well during the first half of the game. After Rutgers took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, the Orange responded in the second with a three-yard touchdown run by Adonis Ameen-Moore.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights (5-8, 1-4 Big East) jumped out to an early 2-1 lead against the Syracuse Orange (6-5, 3-1) on Saturday at the Warrior Classic in Charlotte, N.C., but it didn't hold that lead for long.

Here are three thoughts of the game:

1. Don't get too excited.

What to watch for as the Big East gets set for tip-off at its end-of-the-year tournament at Madison Square Garden.

The Favorite - Syracuse

No one in the Big East combines raw ability with length and athleticism like the Orange do.

The Dark horse - Cincinnati

The Bearcats have the guards to make a run and create mismatches with their small lineup.

Knocked out early - Notre Dame

Had a big win over SU, but ND relies too much on the long ball. If they're not falling the Irish will have a short stay in New York City.

Missteps and mistakes rule the day for Syracuse football as the team drops its first game in Big East Conference play, 19-16.

The game started ominously for the Syracuse University football team when Antwon Bailey, the running back who had been downright dominant against Toledo last week, fumbled on the opening offensive play of the game.

Though there would be some bright spots during the day, it was the miscues—a blocked extra point and field goal attempt, three interceptions, including one near the goal-line, and a game-ending fumble—that defined the Orange’s play Saturday.

As Syracuse prepares to start conference play against Rutgers Saturday, the program needs to deal with a laundry list of injuries.

Chandler Jones is known as a playmaker, a leader and the best player on the defense side for the Syracuse football team. This year was supposed to be the year the defensive end solidified his draft status, and helped lead a younger defense that lost two of its linebackers to the NFL.

Shamarko Thomas is a feared player in the secondary, someone who’s known for having a knack for collisions. The safety was supposed to be a major part of the defensive backfield, combining with Phillip Thomas to bring down ball carriers all across the field.
