Syracuse has jumped out to a 2-0 start this season thanks to clutch fourth-quarter play, outscoring its opposition 22-3 in the final 15 minutes. After several mediocre seasons, the Orange are looking to climb back to the top of the Big East and a win over the Trojans would go a long way toward establish credibility to a rebuilding program. Syracuse is 0-2 all-time against USC, losing in 1924 and more recently in 1990.
