SYRA­CUSE over C Michi­gan by 13

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

The ‘Cuse turned from or­ange to red last week when they dropped a tight 30-23 de­ci­sion to vis­it­ing Mid­dle Ten­nessee. We look for Or­ange HC Dino Babers to get his troops’ at­ten­tion Satur­day af­ter­noon in what has been a great spot to back the host: Syra­cuse is as home chalk in non­con­fer­ence af­fairs fol­low­ing a home game. Iron­i­cally, af­ter spend­ing two years with Bowl­ing Green in the MAC, this will be Babers’ first meet­ing with Cen­tral Michi­gan. The last time the Chips started the sea­son at 2-0 (2014), it ig­nited a 3-year bowl run. A lousy mark as dogs of more than 4 points fol­low­ing a SU un­der­dog win sets the ta­ble – along with a MAC opener up next with Mi­ami Ohio, (Chippe­was lost to RedHawks by 20 points LY). How­ever, don’t go raid­ing the kids’ col­lege fund… Syra­cuse’s Babers has cashed only once in five tries when play­ing at home off a loss.
