Syracuse Vs. USC Score: Game Tied 0-0 After 1st Quarter

After one quarter of play at MetLife Stadium, the Syracuse Orange and No. 2-ranked USC Trojans are tied at 0-0. The Trojans (1-0) entered as 25 1/2-point favorites over the Orange (0-1).

Both Syracuse and USC had two possession march inside enemy territory, however, neither squad was able to come away with points. Hampering the Orange was not driving far enough into USC territory -- on their second possession, they could of settled for a 49-yard field goal but elected to punt.

Meanwhile, the Trojans could have kicked a field goal on their second possession but they're without their starting place kicker Andre Heidari. So, instead of challenging its sophomore walk-on Craig McMahon, they elected to go for it on fourth down. The attempt failed.

Syracuse will begin the second quarter with the ball on its own 14-yard line with a 1-and-10 situation.
