Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

When told LSU running back Derrius Guice was questionable for Saturday's game, Syracuse coach Dino Babers said, "If he's not going to play, they probably have a 5-star or 4-star that we haven't seen on tape that would make our job more difficult because we haven't seen him."

Syracuse coach Dino Babers is always good for a great quote. It just happened again on the ACC coaches call when asked about what he expects to see from LSU's offense Saturday. About the receivers he said they "look like trees and run like deer."

Stockstill leads Middle Tennessee past Syracuse 30-23

Brent Stockstill threw touchdown passes on three consecutive drives, Middle Tennessee capitalized on a big Syracuse miscue and overcame more than 100 yards in penalties to defeat Syracuse 30-23 Saturday in the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

Syracuse's loss to Middle Tennessee is a surprising one, considering FPI pegged the Orange as 16.5-point favorites entering the game. It could end up costing them a bowl appearance: Syracuse entered the contest with a 53% chance to get to six wins, and that now drops to 25%.
