Winless Syracuse wary of FCS power Stony Brook
Thursday, September 13, 2012
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Riding a seven-game losing streak that began nearly a year ago, Syracuse is hoping to end it on Saturday when Stony Brook visits the Carrier Dome.
Coming off consecutive losses to Northwestern (42-41) and No. 2 Southern California (42-29) to start the season, Syracuse isn't likely to take Stony Brook (2-0) lightly. The Seawolves may play at the second level of Division I, but they're ranked No. 16 in the latest poll and are ready to test their mettle against the Orange on Saturday in the Carrier Dome.
Syracuse has won its last 28 games against current members of the Football Championship Subdivision, formerly Division I-AA, a streak that dates to a 14-13 loss to Holy Cross in October 1958.
The Seawolves are 0-3 against Football Bowl Subdivision opponents.
