Syracuse was the second of the four No. 2 seeds to lose to a No. 15 seed in the NCAA tournament , when the Orange was beaten by Richmond in 1991 at Cole Field House. On Thursday, Jim Boeheim's team nearly became the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed, surviving with a closer-than-it-looks 72-65 win overNorth Carolina-Ashevilleat Consol Energy Center. The Bulldogs - as well a large majority of the crowd - felt a few calls helped Syracuse sneak through to the second round Saturday against Kansas State.

COLLEGE PARK -- Indiana coach Kevin Wilson never worked under Mike Leach, and he was never on a staff with West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. But Wilson runs the same type of up-tempo, Air Raid offense that Holgorsen learned under Leach at Texas Tech and now employs with the Mountaineers. The Hoosiers (2-1) run the ball more than most Air Raid-style offenses, but Wilson's offense plays fast and has proven capable of putting up a lot of points. Stopping that offense figures to be key for Maryland (3-1)

The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team took the first step in proving that it belongs in the select group of contenders aiming for the national championship. The offense scored all three goals in the third quarter and the defense did not surrender a goal for more than 20 minutes as the No. 2 Blue Jays defeated No. 7 Syracuse, 11-7, before an announced crowd of 5,970 at Homewood Field in Baltimore on Saturday. Sophomore attackman Brandon Benn scored a career-best four goals and tied a career high with five points to help Johns Hopkins improve to 7-0 and snap a five-game losing skid to the Orange.

C.J. Fair considers himself "a top wing player in the country. " This season, the former City star will get a chance to prove it. Fresh off summer appearances at the LeBron James and Kevin Durant skills academies, Fair is confident that his junior season at Syracuse will be his best yet. “This year my role is much bigger than my previous two years,” Fair said. “I'm more of a focus this time. I'm one of the leaders on the team. It's just a different approach to the game.

GOING TO ST. LOUIS North Carolina's most dangerous game could come in the second weekend against the winner of a probable Florida-Villanova matchup. The other half of the Syracuse bracket offers lots of tradition -- Connecticut and Kansas -- but neither team can match Carolina's depth of talent. The Tar Heels' loss in the ACC semifinals will turn out to be a blessing. TEAM ON THE RISE No team in this bracket had as good a week as Florida did, winning the SEC tournament and drubbing Kentucky in the process.

Maryland and Syracuse are working to schedule a non-conference football series that would begin sometime after the Terps depart the ACC for the Big Ten next summer, according to various media reports. While talking to reporters at ACC Media Day in Greensboro, N.C., Maryland coach Randy Edsall, who graduated from Syracuse in 1980, mentioned the discussions with his alma mater. Syracuse.com cited Syracuse deputy athletics director Herman Frazier as saying the series will “definitely” happen and the non-conference matchups would take place a “few years down the road.” The Terps and Orange will meet as ACC opponents on Nov. 9 at Byrd Stadium.

No. 14 Syracuse (2-0) at No. 1 Virginia (3-0) Sunday, 4:30 p.m. The Orange won last year's meeting, 12-10, at the Carrier Dome, but that was only the second time in the past nine contests that Syracuse had prevailed in the series. The Orange has surrendered just 16 goals in two games this season, but can that retooled defense contain a Cavaliers offense headlined by reigning Tewaaraton Award winner Steele Stanwick (Loyola) and fellow senior attackman Chris Bocklet?

Maryland came away with a 34-20 road win over Syracuse on Saturday afternoon. Here is what went well and what didn't from a Terps perspective. THE GOOD The offense during the first half For a half, Maryland's offense looked like the unit the Terps believe this is capable of being. Maryland had six first-half possessions. Four produced points. Three ended with touchdowns. Quarterback C.J. Brown missed on a potential long touchdown to wide receiver Stefon Diggs on the Terps' third drive and then again on another chance to wide receiver Deon Long later, but Brown had a nice 25-yard touchdown pass early.

COLLEGE PARK -- A week from now, Maryland will be in Indiana for its first Big Ten game and the beginning of a gantlet that includes eight straight against conference teams. The Terrapins will likely be underdogs in most, if not all, of those games. That makes Saturday's game against Syracuse that much more important. Maryland's first goal each year is to qualify for a bowl game, a task that requires a team to win at least six games. The Terps (2-1) could still win enough to qualify even if they don't win Saturday.

Back for a second season, we'll be previewing each of Maryland's football games by conducting a Q&A with a reporter who covers the Terps' next opponent. This week, we traded emails with Jesse Dougherty , sports editor for The Daily Orange, one of the country's most respected college papers. Be sure to check out  more of their coverage here  before the Terps and Orange kick off Saturday at 12:30 at the Carrier Dome.   Tracking the Terps: He's far from a household name, but Scott Shafer has gotten off to a strong start in his year-plus as the head coach at Syracuse.

COLLEGE PARK -- For Maryland, Saturday's game at Syracuse is a chance to get back on track after last week's loss to West Virginia and an opportunity to move to 3-1 heading into Big Ten play. But for Terps coach Randy Edsall , it is also a return to his alma mater. Edsall was a quarterback at Syracuse from 1976-79. He then began his coaching career at Syracuse as a graduate assistant 1980 and spent 11 seasons on the Orange's staff before moving on to Boston College in 1991.

COLLEGE PARK -- By the end of last weekend's game against West Virginia, Maryland was depleted enough that the Terrapins were primarily using backups at inside linebacker and a scout team player at outside linebacker. The Terps might get outside linebackers Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil and Matt Robinson back for Saturday's game against Syracuse. Inside linebacker L.A. Goree might play as well. But all four of Maryland's starting linebackers have dealt with injuries during the early part of the season, and it is possible the Terps will again have to rely heavily on backup players when Maryland plays a Syracuse team that ran for 289 yards in a 40-3 win over Central Michigan last week.

Dylan Maltz has been granted a release from Syracuse and plans to enroll at Maryland for the fall, according to the sophomore attackman's family. Maltz, ranked the sixth-best attackman and the 18th overall player in the 2013 high school class by Inside Lacrosse, appeared in six games this past spring for the Orange, notching three goals and an assist, including an important goal in Syracuse's 12-10 win over Johns Hopkins.
