Syracuse, NY (WBNG Binghamton) When Syracuse takes the field at MetLife Stadium on Saturday, the team will be looking to snap a long losing streak. The Orange has lost its last four against Penn State, and hasn't beaten the Nittany Lions since 1988.

Last year, Syracuse faced USC at the newly constructed MetLife Stadium, losing 42-29 to the then second ranked Trojans.

Penn State may not be a ranked team, but the Orange knows it will have its hands full on Saturday.

"They have some guys returning, I know they have a great front to their defense," said Drew Allen. "They play physical and we know they're going to come out and be disciplined in what they do. They're going to give us a great game."

Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer has not yet said who will be the starting quarterback for the opener. Allen, a transfer from Oklahoma, is competing with sophomore Terrel Hunt for the starting job.
