Syracuse searches for first win

September 13, 2013 Updated Sep 13, 2013 at 12:03 AM EDT

Syracuse, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Syracuse is still searching for its first win of the season, and after a 21-point loss to Northwestern, there are certainly more questions than answers so far for the new head coach Scott Shafer.

One of which is at the quarterback position. Oklahoma transfer Drew Allen has thrown six interceptions in his first two starts, leading coach Shafer to announce that back-up Terrel Hunt will get playing time early in this week's game.

No matter who plays when though, both quarterbacks said this week, they'll continue to support each other.

"I know that I can play a lot better than I did," said Allen. "I have full confidence in my ability and the ability of the offense to do better, and take away those plays and as a whole we did a great job."

"You know, me and him are cool. We let bygones be bygones, whatever happens, happens," said Hunt. "We're going to support each other, whoever it is that is in the game, if he sees something like they're running a cover three or blitzing or something, he's going to tell me and I'm going to tell him, same thing."

Syracuse faces Wagner in its home opener on Saturday. The Seahawks have a few familiar faces on their roster, as Binghamton high school grad Andre Yevchinecz and U-E grad Caleb Scepaniak both are freshman there. Seton grad Chris Furner is also on the roster for Wagner.
