We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at the famous Carrier Dome.. The Central Connecticut Blue Devils come to town to take on the Syracuse Orange.
This is the first match up between the two teams in recent history.
Central Connecticut Blue Devils
The Central Connecticut Blue Devils are a team that competes at the FCS level in the Northeast conference. After a disappointing season last year where they finished 2-9, they have been picked to finish fourth in the preseason conference coaches poll.
Even though the Blue Devils didn’t get the results they wanted in the win/loss column, the one thing they were really good at least year was airing out the ball.
The Blue Devils had 3,944 total yards on offense last year, and that should be the case again this year.
Although they lost their starting quarterback, they have another one waiting in the wings who did get to play in a few games last year. They also have their leading rusher and receiver back from a year ago.
Where the Blue Devils went wrong last year though was on the defensive end of the field.
Most weeks last year they were blown out because opposing teams were able to light them up through the air and on the ground. They haven’t done a ton this off season to make anyone think this team is going to be any different.
They should be a little bit better on defense, but who knows how much good it will do.
If you’re the type of person who likes a lot of offense, and not a whole lot of defense, this Syracuse Orange team is for you.
Last year under first year head coach Dino Barbers, the Orange were only able to come away with four wins, but it wasn’t because the lack of offense.
Eric Dungey is a star under center for the Orange. He has the ability to air it out, and at anytime he can throw an 80 yard pass for a touchdown. He is one of the top quarterbacks in the ACC and that should be the case again this year.
On the offensive end one thing that might improve is the running game. In Dungey’s years as the quarterback he really hasn’t had a running back to rely on, and that has hurt the offense a bit.
How well this team does this year, wont’ come down to the offense though, that will come down to the defense. Last year the defense was terrible and gave opposing teams basically whatever they wanted.
The defense has to try and slow down opposing teams and not make it so every game the offense has to put up 45 points to win.

This game is going to get ugly early on.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: There is no line yet. A final score prediction is provided below.
The Orange’s offense will be too much early on, and they will pour it on the Blue Devils.
I expect Dungey will be watching most of the second half with a clipboard in his hand, that is how much Syracuse will be up by.
