Syracuse lost to Brigham Young 42-21
The Orangemen did not look good. They had an adequate passing attack, occasional effectiveness rushing and little else. No one on the 'Cuse defensive line could generate a consistent pass rush and the rest of the defense was sporadic at best. BYU almost doubled the Orange offensive production for most of the game. The Orangemen kept in the contest mainly on a combination of good play calling on offense and well timed blitzes on defense. The game was close until the fourth quarter when BYU pulled away in a major embarrassment for the Big East.
