Last time they played: Eventual undefeated Syracuse blows out Colgate in heated 1987 rivalry game

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse and Colgate cut ties to their football rivalry 23 years ago. It was probably for good reason. In what can only be described as a ‘nasty’ game in every way, the Orangemen routed the Raiders 52-6 on Oct. 24, 1987, in the Carrier Dome. Despite the storied rivalry creating some emotions, Colgate, an I-AA school, did not have enough to compete with Syracuse, which had improved to 7-0 on the season. For the Orangemen, Colgate was just the game between a Penn State victory the week before and a game against Pittsburgh the next week. In the grand scheme of things, it’s probably one of the least memorable games in an 11-0-1 season for Syracuse that ended with a tie against Auburn in the Sugar Bowl. But boy, did it spur up the emotions during the game. While Colgate didn’t have the physical talent the Orangemen had, the players stood their ground. And then some, said Syracuse defensive tackle Ted Gregory, who left the game with a bruised knee after what he considered to be a cheap shot. ‘They obviously didn’t come to play football, and the score indicated it,’ Gregory told the (Albany) Times Union after the game. ‘They were terrible. I’m very complimentary to the opposing team, always. This is the first time … I have absolutely no respect.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Syracuse Athletic Director Jake Crouthamel decided this would be the last meeting between Syracuse and Colgate, due to the different paths the two schools were taking athletically. Colgate was a pretty good I-AA team, even defeating I-A school Army earlier in 1987, but the Orangemen entered this game ranked No. 9 in the nation after defeating Joe Paterno’s Penn State team, 48-21. After the result that occurred that Saturday, it was probably a good idea. ‘Personally I’m sorry to see the series end because I’m an old-timer,’ Colgate head coach Fred Dunlap said to the Times Union. ‘But if Syracuse is going to be in the Top 10, it’s certainly not a good thing.’ Despite the extracurricular activities, which included two ejections (one from each team), the game had a lot of positives for the Orangemen. The offense produced 560 total yards, proving it could avoid Colgate being a trap game in between two tough opponents. Quarterback Don McPherson had people talking Heisman Trophy after his performance. He went 10-for-11 for 244 yards and four touchdowns. His top target, wide receiver Tommy Kane, went for 193 yards and all four of McPherson’s touchdowns. The ability of the Orangemen to not overlook Colgate and to cruise to a blowout may have done wonders for SU’s fate the rest of the season. The two-week period of defeating Penn State and then avoiding a letdown against the Raiders sent Syracuse into Pittsburgh as confident as it could have been. Said McPherson to the Times Union after the game: ‘The guys are playing very good football right now. Right now, I think we’re unstoppable.’ —Compiled by Asst.
