Syracuse blows out Cincinnati

CINCINNATI -- If you'd have told me before the year, I wouldn't have believed it.

Syracuse just dominated Cincinnati for a 31-7 road victory, improving to 6-2 on the year and just one win away from guaranteed bowl eligibility. The Orange were the better, tougher, more disciplined team all day and kept the Big East's best offense (minus Zach Collaros) virtually punchless.

The changing of the guard is complete, and Cincinnati (3-5) may not even go bowling after two straight BCS games.
