Movin' on Up! Syracuse Football jumps to #13 in College Football Playoff Poll

Syracuse Football makes its second ever appearance, and highest ever ranking in the College Football Playoff Poll.

The Orange is #13 in the poll used to determine the four teams that make the College Football Playoff. 13th is the same spot the Orange earned in both the AP and Coaches Poll on Sunday.

The Orange is 7-2 on the season, this lofty ranking saves a remote chance of cracking the top-four with a 10-2 record should the team win its last three games.

At the very least, it's a chance at a NewYear's Six Bowl such as the Peach Bowl if the Orange could win out.

Right now? It's an absolute source of pride for Central New Yorkers yearning for a top notch football team to root for.

The Orange is only one spot ahead of NC State (14) and four spots ahead of Boston College (17) to earn the second highest ACC ranking in the College Football Playoff Poll behind only Clemson (2).

Syracuse hosts Louisville on Friday night (7:00 p.m.) in its final home game of the season. Should the Orange win, as its favored by 21 points to do, it would set up an epic showdown with #3 Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium on November 17th.
