The Wagner Seahawks opened up their 2018 college football season with a nice 40-23 win over the Bowie State Bulldogs.
Syracuse also opened Week 1 with a victory, taking down the Western Michigan Broncos, 55-42.
These two face off in Week 2, and while the line hasn’t yet been set and both teams are undefeated at this juncture, you can expect when the line does come out that it will heavily favor Syracuse.
The Seahawks need to duplicate one very specific part of their Week 1 victory.
They absolutely need to come out hot.
Against Bowie State, Wagner was able to put up 17 points in the first quarter while giving up just three. No, we’re not suggesting this is what exactly needs to happen in Week 2—it’s simply not plausible against the likes of the Orange.
What we’re suggesting is that the Seahawks need to be aggressive on offense, physical on defense and able to maintain that level of competitive spirit even if it goes down by a touchdown or two early.
Playing from behind isn’t something this roster is built to do, which is why it can’t get conservative during the early portion of the contest.
Syracuse doesn’t necessarily need to start hot, as a second-half burst is going to be just as detrimental to Wagner’s chances as would a first-half explosion. But either of those become far less possible if the Orange get ahead of themselves and play a sloppy game.
Against the Seahawks, the Orange are actually allowed to play a bit more of a conservative game than we can expect from the Seahawks. Yes, we’re sure to see some shots down field and plenty of blitzes up the middle, but the more likely outcome is that Syracuse is able to cut through defenses like a surgeon.
Dink and dunk plays have a real chance of going for big yardage against this Seahawks defense.

The good news for Wagner is that Syracuse likely doesn’t have the defensive-oriented roster to completely shut them down. Scoring points won’t exactly be easy, but it’s not an impossible task, which would be the case against other FBS programs.
The problem for the Seahawks is that their own defense will likely struggle even more against the Orange offense.

This game is likely to be a high-scoring one for the Orange, but Wagner should be able to score a few of their own touchdowns.
Give this one to Syracuse, but check back soon for a pick ATS when the line is set.
