With the Ivy League returning and the Big Ten reverting back to a normal schedule, it’s unlikely that the ACC will have such as season as they did a year ago. But you can still bet on the conference to be represented on Championship Weekend and possibly produce the national champion for the third consecutive time.

“Unfinished Business.” That was the sentiment echoed around the Syracuse locker room, and especially so amongst the Orange’s fifth-year returnees, coming into last season following a strong 5-0 start before the season was shut down in 2020.
