Syracuse football welcomes Albany to the Hill as the 2021 season enters its third week.
Syracuse football had its home debut at the Carrier Dome this past Saturday afternoon. It was terrific to see Orange fans cheering on the ‘Cuse, however, the Syracuse football offense fell flat in a 17-7 loss to former Big East Conference foe Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights (2-0), now a member of the Big Ten Conference, and the Orange (1-1) played a scoreless first half. After intermission, the Syracuse football defense remained solid, but a few costly mistakes and a struggling offense led to the final result.
The Orange will seek to regroup and regain its mojo when the ‘Cuse hosts another Empire State squad, FCS team Albany, on Saturday, Sept. 18, for an afternoon showdown on the Hill.
Last Saturday, Albany played a closely fought contest at home against Rhode Island. Per an announcement from the Albany athletics department Web site, the Great Danes lost to Rhode Island, 16-14, in an encounter that came down to the final drive.

Syracuse vs. Albany prediction for week 3
Syracuse football continues to play well on the defensive side of the field. The offense, though, leaves a lot to be desired. Losing to Rutgers isn’t an awful thing to have had occurred, but a win over the Scarlet Knights would have really pumped up the Orange faithful.
Albany is a solid FCS team, but I don’t see the Great Danes giving Syracuse football too challenging of a game. I like the Orange to prevail in this one, by a comfortable margin.
