The Voice of the Syracuse Orangemen, Matt Park, joined College Football Gametime to preview today’s game against Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium.

Park on where this matchup ranks in Syracuse football history, “It’s the biggest game since 2001 when they were 8-2 and then got steam rolled by Miami. Not sure what the percentage will be today but there will be a lot of Syracuse Orange fans in Yankee Stadium.”

Park when asked about the Syracuse offense, “This is the most dependable offensive line since around 2005. They have one of the best kickers in football. Eric Dungey is the key to making it all go though.”

Park on Notre Dame, “I think they haven’t had the margins of victory that other top teams have had in fact it’s been eye opening the other way by winning close games like an eight point victory over Ball State. But they have been rolling people since the return of running back Dexter Williams.”

Park when asked about the Syracuse defensive line, “There are two to three players that have NFL talent. Robinson was originally recruited to the Big 12 and he is a stud. Coleman is a little undersized but he is very quick. Both of these guys have been great.”

Park went on to talk about how there is already a Syracuse fan base in New York because of the college basketball tournament that took place this week at Madison Square Garden.

Park said that this is technically a Notre Dame home game but he expects sixty percent Notre Dame fans and forty percent Syracuse fans in Yankee Stadium today.
