For the last time, the Syracuse Orange and South Florida Bulls will meet as Big East Conference football foes Saturday, and according to the oddsmakers, the final showdown will feature the Bulls (2-5) entering as 3-point favorites over the visiting Orange (3-4). The game is expected to be a high-scoring affair as the over/under is set at 52 1/2 points.
