Records Were Made to be Broken

Syracuse football has a new shiny offensive system that brings with it a lot of buzz. If it lives up to the hype, which Syracuse records are the most likely to fall?

The cliche "records were made to be broken" may never be more true for the Syracuse Orange than in the 2016 season. With a new offense under head coach Dino Babers, the Orange is expected to score in bunches this season. If they are able to achieve similar production that Babers' offenses have at his previous stops, some records will be shattered.
