Syracuse vs NC State game preview
Why will Syracuse win?
Can a running game get its groove back?
He roared alongside star RB Sean Tucker and QB Garrett Shrader who knocked out — the orange led the ACC in a 237 yard dash per game — and then came last week against Louisville.
He threw the orange for 46 yards, and the running game couldn’t do anything but make Tucker run a bit, crashing everything in a 41-3 loss.
Ground attack should take over, defensive front should continue to be a concern in the background with its massive passing dash, and D in general should keep the NC-run’s mediocre game from rolling in.

Why is North Carolina winning?
NC State’s running defense has been fantastic.
He’s the best in the ACC, allowing just over three yards per carry and only giving up one pitch before allowing one to Florida State and three to Wake Forest over the last two games.
No one other than Louisville has been able to run for more than 140 yards and average over five yards per hit against a Wolfpack defense who is amazing in the third drop, decent at taking the ball away, and must hold up against the One Dimension Orange O.

What will happen
Devin Leary continues to play like he belongs in the conversation of ACC’s top players — yes, even with Kenny Pickett and Sam Howell.
He’s coming on 408 yards against Wake Forest, throwing four touchdown passes in each of his last three games, over 300 yards in each of his last four games, and…
The North Carolina-run defense will take care of this.
