Syracuse students agree: We're still on break. Colgate sucks.
The Red Raiders from nearby Hamilton storm into town after gorging on turkey and stuffing on campus. The longest "rivalry" for Syracuse, Colgate has been playing Syracuse since 1902. Since then, Syracuse has won way more times than Colgate, and the last 46 in a row. Jim Boeheim was a high school senior the last time Colgate beat Syracuse. Colgate is smaller, not as athletic, and... well Colgate. Syracuse should dominate on the boards and prevent any second chance points for Colgate, while racking up points in the paint for themselves. However, Colgate will be shooting over the 2-3, meaning they will be dared to take a bunch of threes. And they can hit them. Senior Murphy Burnatowski can certainly make a difference and keep Colgate hanging around. But this is all relative. Syracuse will pull away and eventually walk ons will be in the game. Syracuse will beat the Red Raiders by 27.
