Tonight, Nate Mink guides us through Syracuse Football’s season opener against Louisville.

This was the Cardinals’ first true road opener since 2005 (!) and their first visit to the building since the 2018 season.

Since both joined the ACC, recent matchups in this series have been one-sided margins, with Louisville dominating the win-loss record.

Syracuse thinks this year will be different. For one thing, it’s September, not November, when Orange is usually shorthanded due to injury.

Both programs have undergone coaching changes and are led by new offensive coordinators. Lance Taylor came from the University of Notre Dame. He has a front-line group that attacks people in the run game and a dynamic dual-threat quarterback in Malik Cunningham. This will be a challenge to SU’s green defensive front.

Orange counters with Virginia transplants Robert Anae and Jason Beck to bring in the Air Raid offense and fix SU’s passing game.

Former Syracuse running back Jawer Jordan is listed as the Cardinals’ top kick and punt returner. The speedy back is also listed as his second tailback on the team behind Tennessee transfer Tyyon his Evans.
