Syracuse is now on a four-game losing streak after another away loss.

When Syracuse (4-7, 2-5 ACC) entered Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, the Orange had a slim chance to win. Rain fell almost the entire game, including a forty-three minute delay in the second quarter, but it was no contest as the Louisville Cardinals ended the game with 727 yards for the night, and Syracuse only 335. As a result, Syracuse failed to win a road game this season, and the team has failed to qualify for bowl contention for a fourth year in a row.

After 11 years of funding, Syracuse University will be pulling its support from the Westside Initiative, an organization committed to revitalizing the neighborhood

When the Near Westside Initiative was founded in 2006, Syracuse University played a large role financially and administratively.

The Syracuse Orange lost to the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest 64-43 in a football game Saturday, despite having a final score you’d expect from a basketball contest.
