Although each game is its own event, I do think college football -- with its short season and young players -- lends itself to game to game momentum. That comes into play with Syracuse since we face them at the end of the season again and they have a bear of a schedule (as USA Today's preview points out). They play Notre Dame, Maryland and at Central Michigan out of conference. I think there is a good chance they are out of bowl contention before the come to Boston. Let's hope they have thrown in the towel by then.
Virginia Tech is another team we get late in the season. This preview emphasizes what we already know: their D will be good and their offense will be a question mark all year.
Colorado State returns all of their key offensive starters and might be a tougher opponent than we think.
