Why Syracuse can cover

Syracuse has one of the most unique and decisive home field advantages in all of college football. The Carrier Dome is home to a raucous crowd and the Carrier Dome is simply unlike any other venue in the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Orange also happen to be 23-19 in home openers at the Carrier Dome.

Syracuse also returns one of the nation’s best running backs in Sean Tucker. The sophomore rushed for 1,496 yards and 12 touchdowns on 246 carries, while also catching 20 passes for 255 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2021.

Why Louisville can cover

Louisville quarterback Malik Cunningham is one of the most dynamic offensive players in the nation. The elusive senior from Montgomery, Ala. completed 62% of his passes for 2,941 yards and 19 touchdowns with 6 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,031 yards and 20 touchdowns, joining Lamar Jackson as the only other quarterback in school history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season.

Cunningham absolutely shredded the Syracuse defense in 2021, throwing for 4 touchdowns and running another one in. The Cardinals won that game in blowout fashion 41-3.
