SU Falls to Fourth

SU Falls to Fourth

After three weeks at the top, the Syracuse Orange are now down to 4th in the latest AP poll, following a nightmare week which featured an embarrassing home loss to Boston College and a controversial road loss to Duke.

 

SU became the first No. 1 team to lose two games in the same week since Texas in January 2010, but their 25-2 overall record keeps them in the top 5 for the 13th straight week.

 

Florida, Wichita State, and Arizona are the three teams ahead of the Cuse, and they all receive first place votes. Despite beating SU on Saturday, a loss to rival North Carolina earlier in the week keeps Duke behind the Orange at #6.

 

Another tough week for the Cuse begins right away, with a game at Maryland tonight at 7 on ESPN. And 12th-ranked Virginia awaits SU on Saturday.
