Syracuse, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Jets aren't the only team practicing in upstate New York with a quarterback competition, the Syracuse Orange have its own battle brewing just north of Cortland.

Syracuse opened training camp this week, and there's a slew of guys who could start come the Orange's opening game against Penn State. One of which is Oklahoma transfer Drew Allen.

Allen is a senior who left the Sooners hoping to have a chance to start for his final season of college football. He's competing with Terrel Hunt and Charley Loeb for the starting position. However, he believes his work ethic will help him standout in the QB battle.

"I've got to do everything in my power to get up here as early as possible, leave here late, so I'm prepared for every single day, compete at a high level and hopefully, eventually solidify myself," Allen said earlier this week.

The Orange continues practice on campus this week, before taking training camp to Fort Drum for the second week of practice.
