Big East Awards

December 9, 2011 - 2:29pm
The Syracuse University football team earned seven spots on the All-Big East First- and Second-Teams Thursday despite losing its last five.


For the Syracuse University football team (5-6, 1-6 Big East), it was season that ended in disappointment. The team fell in its final game to Pittsburgh, capping a five-game losing streak and missing bowl eligibility by one game. This came on the heels of a 2010 season, capped by a victory against Kansas State in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Individually, though, the Orange had some success. Today, the team saw seven of its players achieve All-Big East status.
