Syracuse hopes to continue its history of rebounding from lackluster starts when it hosts Georgia Tech in an ACC game Saturday at the Carrier Dome in New York.
The Orange (0-2, 0-2 ACC) lost to current No. 11 North Carolina and No. 21 Pittsburgh and will be challenged by the Yellow Jackets (1-1, 1-1) in game that will be played without fans.
In 2013, the most recent time Syracuse opened with back-to-back losses, the Orange finished 7-6. The prior season they were 0-3 but won eight of the final 10.
