Syracuse @ Ohio
Last Season Records: Ohio 2-1; Syracuse 1-10
What to Know
The Ohio Bobcats and the Syracuse Orange will face off at 7 p.m. ET Sept. 4 at Peden Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. The Bobcats were on the positive side of .500 (2-1) last season and are hoping to kick off an even more successful year. Meanwhile, returning after a rocky 1-10 season, ‘Cuse is aiming to prove that the past does not define them.
Two last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: Ohio was 11th worst when it came to passing touchdowns last year, with the squad coming up with only four overall (bottom 92%). The Orange experienced some struggles of their own as they ranked second worst in the nation with respect to yards per game last year, where the team accrued only 265.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two. We’ll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
