This season I will once again be charting Syracuse’s games in terms of “winning plays”. I look at the results of each play and decide which team got the minimum they wanted out of the play. Rather than making instinctive judgments, I use a formula:

- On first down, the offensive team wants to get at least a third of the way to a new first down: they will have two more plays before they might have to surrender the ball and if they gain that same amount of yards on each of those two plays, they’ll get the first down. If they don’t make it a third of the way to a new first down, the defense won the play.
- On second down, the offense wants to get at least halfway to a new first down by the same logic.
- On third and fourth down, they want to get the first down.
- Penalties, if added onto a play by the referees, are added on to the results above. If the offense gains 5 yards on first down but there was holding and they lost yardage instead, the defense won the play. If a running back made a 25 yard run on first and ten and the holding was 20 yards downfield, turning it into a 5 yard gain, that’s still a win for the offense. If the defense is penalized and it’s tacked on, again the net result is what is evaluated. The penalties I’ve listed negated the play entirely and are a “loss” for the penalized team and thus a win for their opponent.
- If a penalty was not tacked onto a play, it’s a lost play for the team being penalized. I'll count them separate from the other plays from scrimmage because I don't know if the intended play before the penalty would have been a run or a pass - so I wouldn't know where to put it in the chart below.
- A turnover is, obviously, a win for the team that wound up with the ball.
- On a kick-off a touchback brings the ball out to the 25 yard line. Teams still seem to be trying to kick the ball into the end zone and avoid a runback if they can, so any kick-off that results in the receiving team starting between their goal line and their 25 is a win for the kicking team. Beyond that, the receiving team wins.
- On a punt, a touchback takes the ball out of the 20. So any punt that results in the other team taking over from their goal line to their 20 is a win for the punting team. If the next change in field position is at least 40 yards, the punting team has also won the play.
- A successful place kick is, obviously, a win for the kicking team.
- Any play that results in a touchdown is, obviously, a win for that team that scores it.
- A “victory play” where a team accepts a loss just to let the clock run out, is a win for the offensive team.

I will indicate in parenthesis how many yards there were to go to get a new first down, (if other than 10), unless it was for no gain or negative yardage. If it was a touchdown, (“TD)” a scramble/sack (“S”) a victory play (“V”) or involved a penalty (P). I’ll treat a scramble or a sack as a passing play as the Cuse.com play by play now tells you when it’s either of those two. 1R means first down running plays. 1P means first down passing plays, etc.

I have decided to list the “Big Plays” at the bottom of each team’s summary. A big play is a play from scrimmage of over 20 yards, (or 20+ yards lost), kickoff returns of +25 yards, punt returns of +20, blocked kicks, missed kicks, and takeovers on fumbles, interceptions and downs.

Overall Game Total: Syracuse 82 Wake Forest 78

Comments: There were two punts in the game, one for each team. Theirs came on their first possession and ours on our penultimate possession, (we were just running the clock out on the last).

We limited Wake to just 8 possessions for the game, (a dozen is more typical). That was a good thing as they scored 4 touchdowns and attempted two field goals, making one in those possessions. The others were their initial punt and that interception at the goal line at the end. We didn’t do so badly in our nine possessions: 5TDs, (despite a significant field position deficit), an interception, that punt and the end of both halves. 9 touchdowns in 17 possessions makes for an exciting game.

I’ve read that Brady Denaburg led the country in touchbacks coming into this game. He still does.

This was +4 game (82-78). Here are the most comparable games in the Babers Era:
2017 Syracuse 104 Middle Tennessee 98 = +6 We lost 23-30
2017 Syracuse 107 Central Michigan 100 = +7 We won 41-17
2017 Syracuse 97 Pittsburgh 96 = +1 We won 27-24
2018 Syracuse 99 Pittsburgh 97 = +2 We lost 37-44
2019 Syracuse 118 Wake Forest 111 = +7 We won 39-30
2020 Syracuse 108 Georgia Tech 102 = +6 We won 37-20

Comments: Through 11 games, even with all the strategies about when to defer, when to punt and the various turnovers, etc, there’s been no net difference between where we get the ball and how far we have to score or even the number of possessions.

We’ve kicked the ball 168 times and got what we wanted out of it 140 times, (83%). Our opposition has kicked the ball 164 times and got what they wanted 138 times, (84%). Football is still football.

Big plays often decide games but were +15 there and are 6-6 on the season. There weren’t enough big plays in the games we’ve played for them to be decisive. It’s hard to win if the other team is dominating the incremental but consistent plays, (consistently good rather than occasionally great)

Go figure: we are 109-111 on first down runs on offense but 98-55 on second down runs. Defensively we are 104-102 on first down runs but 42-90 on second down runs. I guess defenses are more ready for first down runs and have to think about the pass more on second down.

We’re also pretty good at stopping third and fourth down passes, 70-48. Those are two very good downs to dominate. But we are 35-54 against the run on those downs.

Our best to worst plays on offense:
4th down runs (8-4)
2nd down runs (98-55)
3rd down runs (41-31)
1st down runs (109-111)
2nd down passes: (52-54)
1st down passes (53-63)
3rd down passes (31-59)
4th down passes (1-3)

Defense:
4th down passes (11-3)
3rd down passes (59-45)
2nd down passes (79-63)
1st down runs (104-102)
1st down passes (73-83)
4th down runs (5-7)
3rd down runs (30-47)
2nd down runs (42-90)

I don’t think we faced a lot of really good passers this year. I know we didn’t have very many of them, either.
