Syracuse students agree: The Grease Trucks are overrated.
Syracuse has only a few games left on the season. But their second to last road game comes to the RAC in New Jersey. Syracuse has had close calls with Rutgers the last few years. Will this be a trap game for the Orange?
Rutgers is a young team, but they do have some talent. Freshman Eli Carter is a shooter that can hit long threes, and he averages 13.6ppg. Rutgers can also score well in transition. They will look to push the tempo in this game. But sadly that favors Syracuse. A young team is prone to turnovers and Rutgers does turn the ball over. Syracuse should be slow to start as usual, but they will roll in the second half. Syracuse has way too much talent and their defense is far better than the Rutgers Offense. Syracuse will roll by 18.
This game is nationally broadcast on ESPN at 1:00pm. It's an away game so John and I will be all over the tweets. Be sure to wish him a happy birthday as he just turned 30 and is old as dirt @JBren. Enjoy the game and those nice orange uniforms.
