A pair of lopsided victories over Ivy League schools has bumped the Syracuse Orange further up the top 10 in both the AP Top 25 and ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll.
The media members place Syracuse at No. 8 while the coaches put the Orange at No. 7, both polls were released Monday afternoon.
Colgate is next on the agenda for Jim Boeheim's bunch. The Red Raiders are winless in five tries this season and appear to be lambs looking to avoid a slaughter at the Carrier Dome on Monday night.
Tip-off is scheduled for 7 P.M. on Jim Boeheim Court. The game is not televised and can only be viewed in the Syracuse area by Verizon FiOS subscribers at ESPN360.com.
