Syracuse is unbeaten after one game. That's the good news for the Orange.
But there's a lot of not-so-good as the Orange have a bye week to sort things out following a precarious 27-26 victory over Villanova in double overtime.
Perhaps the biggest concern was starting quarterback Terrel Hunt punching opposing linebacker Dillon Lucas. He was ejected late in the first half.
Head coach Scott Shafer says Hunt fully understands the punch he threw at a Villanova defender is not condoned and regrets his action. Shafer says he met with Hunt and the quarterback apologized to his teammates.
The 6-foot-3, 234-pound Hunt was 10 of 17 for 94 yards and ran for 25 yards on three carries before departing.
