Quarterback Terrel Hunt was responsible for five touchdowns and the special teams forced four turnovers as the Orange dominated in a 52-17 victory over the Green Wave.

The Syracuse Orange became the 15th FBS program to win 700 games Saturday, beating Tulane 52-17. Terrel Hunt led the offense in his first career start, completing 16 of 21 passes for 175 yards and four touchdowns and running in another score.

“I thought Terrel played really well,” head coach Scott Shafer said. “If he stays in rhythm he’s pretty good.”

Hunt was especially on point in the first half, going 14-for-17 passing.

SU couldn't overcome at a 34-7 haft time deficit, falling to the Wildcats, 48-27.

Senior quarterback Drew Allen threw four interceptions and Syracuse (0-2) fell to Northwestern (2-0) 48-27.

The Orange defense struggled early on and gave up a touchdown on the first drive of the game when Wildcat quarterback Kain Colter connected with junior running back Treyvon Green for a 8-yard passing play.

The return of seniors Christopher Clark and Jarrod West, as well as some young talent, give SU some depth at the receiver position.

The philosophy of Orange head football coach Scott Shafer has always been centered on the idea that a hard-nosed defense will trump a talented offense on any occasion. If you need proof, just look at Syracuse’s 2012 Pinstripe Bowl victory over West Virginia. His defensive unit held the ninth-best offensive team in the country to only fourteen points in a dominant triumph over the Mountaineers.
