Central Michigan University headed into the game with Syracuse with a 2-0 and a 38-17 victory over the Purdue Boilermakers the previous week.   The hopes and anticipation was high at Kelly Shorts Stadium for the game against Syracuse University.   A large crowd would watch on a cool sunny day with the Chips taking the opening drive the length of the field for a 3 point field goal.  

That would be it for the Chippewas on the day from a scoring standpoint.   With star running back Thomas Rawls being withheld from the game because of an issue the Chips only had 34 yards rushing.    Also star receiver Titus Davis would be out for a 2nd game because of a minor injury the CMU offense lacked any energy.

The Chips looking to start the season with 3-0 record were totally caught off guard by the high powered Orangeman offense.   Syracuse would take a 17-3 lead into the halftime and then really turn on the jets in the 2nd half of play moving to a 40-3 final score.

Terrel Hunt quarterback for the Syracuse Orangeman would have a career game with 93 yards rushing and completing 20 of 30 passes for 174 yards.   The Chippewas now travel to face the Kansas Jayhawks before opening Mid-American Conference play against the Toledo Rockets.
