Syracuse had no trouble with FCS Colgate as it demolished the Raiders 65-0 and Umari Hatcher had four catches for 105 yards and Garrett Shrader and Carlos Del Rio-Wilson combined for 28 of 37 for 406 yards and seven touchdowns for the Orange. LeQuint Allen also rushed for 107 yards in an all-around dominating performace by Syracuse, which was a 40-point favorite. It was a promising start to the season even though it was against inferior competition because the Orange ended 2022 losing six of their final seven games and they have an opportunity for another big win this week against Western Michigan, which also comes off an FCS opponent and the Broncos best St. Francis (PA) 35-17. The Broncos have a new head coach in Lance Taylor following a 5-7 season and they are looking to improve offensively after their QBs threw more interceptions than touchdowns and they averaged only 3.5 yards per carry last year. Jack Salopek was 18 of 26 passing for 170 yards against St. Francis, but the Broncos obviously will have a tougher opponent this week. Western Michigan has gone UNDER seven games in a row and five straight as an underdog. Syracuse is 4-0 ATS following a win by 20-plus points and it returns eight defensive starters. Take Syracuse to cover, and make it a Max Play on the UNDER.
