On offense, briefly

Syracuse may be down to its third quarterback with starter Terrel Hunt out for the season and backup Dungey leaving Saturday’s game after a helmet-to-helmet hit.

The Orange has allowed just 140 rushing yards and 1.5 yards per attempt in the first three games. They’ll face their first real test in LSU star Leonard Fournette.
