Syracuse Orange vs Duke Blue Devils 11/16/2019
The Orange will go flat out to take a conference win against Duke despite being the underdogs in this showdown. They also look to halt a four-game losing skid with the last two games ending up in lopsided fashion against Florida State University (17-35) and Boston College (27-58). Playing on the road is another problem for Syracuse Orange as they have lost their last three away games by an average of 22.3 points.
