The LSU Tigers will look to become the first to upend the Syracuse Orange in 2015 at the Carrier Dome this Saturday. 

LSU is coming off a 45–21 victory over Auburn and jumped to No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll on Monday. Running back Leonard Fournette amplified Heisman trophy hype by recording 228 yards and three touchdowns on only 19 carries against Auburn.

The Orange are off to their first 3–0 start since 1991. Injuries have plagued the Syracuse quarterbacks as the Orange turned to third and fourth stringers Austin Wilson (4-of-7 for 49 yards, one touchdown and one interception) and Zack Mahoney (4-for-4 for 19 yards). Last week's starting quarterback Eric Dungey is doubtful for Saturday's game.
