Syracuse Outmatched By The Fighting Irish
Where do we start with this one? How about with Everett Golson? He had what I would call an ambiguous night. Prior to this game, he did not turn the ball over at all. He turned it over three times in the first half and it easily could have been four. Then he threw a pick six late. At the same time, he also had 25 straight completions while throwing for 362 yards and 4 touchdowns.
His best receivers were Will Fuller who caught six passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns and Corey Robinson who had a career night with 8 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown.
Once again the running game did not do much to help and the offensive line did not help the cause. These are areas that need to improve as the schedule gets tougher.
The defense was absolutely solid. With the inconsistency of the offense, it was nice to see that the defense had their back.
It is nice to get the win and be 4-0. But being real, Syracuse was completely outmatched. A better opponent would have capitialized on the Irish mistakes. Coach Kelly has lots to work on getting ready for Stanford.
