Dontae Strickland puts Syracuse on top of Clemson with early TD

Syracuse Dontae Strickland

The Syracuse Orange are David this Friday night against Goliath Clemson, and Dontae Strickland has given them reason to believe in miracles.

On the game’s opening drive for either team, Strickland capped off a 10-play drive with a 23-yard touchdown reception to put the Orange up by the score of 7-0.

We don’t expect this lead to hold up. Clemson is the No. 2 team in the nation, and Syracuse is lucky to enter Week 7 with a 3-3 record. That said, if Troy could go into Baton Rouge and outclass LSU during homecoming weekend, then anything is possible.

Also, it IS Friday the 13th.
