We met some very nice Syracuse fans after the game Saturday who were quite proud of how their team hung in there.
And the Orange are improved, it's clear.
Meanwhile, Penn State fans still don't know what to think, but what they can agree on is that the pollsters are being quite kind to the Nittany Lions.
Think about some of those other teams that started lower and had to claw their way into the top 10 and 5.
These Nittany Lions are at No. 5 after playing Akron and Syracuse, with Temple next.
Amazing, considering the question marks.
PSU fans should enjoy the height in the polls and wait for Iowa's arrival to find out something.
