SCORE UPDATE: Wake Forest 3, Syracuse 0; 12:06 remaining in the first quarter
It’s just a little less hectic before the game this week, as the first element concerns the status of the team’s starting bettor.
James Williams is in the building, a powerful indicator he will be available to play after missing last week’s 33-30 loss to Florida State.
Williams was among the surprise absences last week. The other, of course, was Taj Harris, who has since left the program to request a transfer.
But there are several notable players who won’t be available for Saturday’s game.
Starting left goalie Chris Bleich is absent, as is upper reserve Darius Tisdale. That makes true first-year guard Kalan Ellis, a 6-foot-6, 365-pounder from Hawaii, the best candidate to make his first career debut.
Syracuse will be without Ja’Had Carter security for a fourth consecutive week. Carter, who started 10 games last year as a rookie, led all of the SU’s defensive backs with 67 tackles last season and also recorded two interceptions, three pass stoppages, one forced fumble and one fumble. recovery.
Running back Abdul Adams is unavailable for Saturday’s game, a team spokesperson said.
And freshman Oronde Gadsden II came out with a boot on his right foot. Gadsden has played sparingly this season, but is one of the team’s best young receivers.
Carter is one of the team’s best playmakers in high school, and it’s a game that could be determined by which team has a higher success rate on their down shots.
Some Syracuse personnel wear green shirts and khaki pants on Military Appreciation Day. Head Coach Dino Babers wears a long-sleeved camouflage shirt with an American flag on the right arm.
