Syracuse redshirt junior QB Terrel Hunt ran for a career-high three touchdowns in Saturday's 40-3 win over Central Michigan.
Hunt finished 20-for-30 for 175 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions through the air, and added 92 yards and the aforementioned three scores on 13 carries on the ground. Hunt's status for this game was in doubt after he was ejected for punching Villanova LB Dillon Lucas in the second quarter of the Orange's 27-26 double-overtime victory in the opener, but the ACC decided not to punish him further. The Orange's offense is heavily dependent on Hunt. Sep 13 - 8:16 PM

The ACC has decided not to suspend Syracuse redshirt junior QB Terrel Hunt for punching a Villanova player last week.

Hunt was ejected for socking Villanova LB Dillon Lucas in the second quarter of the Orange's 27-26 double-overtime victory Friday. "When a player is disqualified from the game due to a flagrant personal foul, that team's conference shall automatically initiate a video review for possible additional sanctions before the next scheduled game," Section 6.1 of the NCAA rule book states. An ACC spokesperson said the conference reviewed the play and didn't believe further punishment was warranted. Hunt completed 10-of-17 passes for 94 yards before he got booted from the contest. "It's an emotional game and if you've never played it, you don't know what it's like to get frickin' pummeled," head coach Scott Shafer said. "There are people on your back and people talking to you and you react. We've all done it." Syracuse plays at Central Michigan on Sept. 13.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline compares Syracuse redshirt junior QB Terrel Hunt to "sort of a poor man’s Donovan McNabb."

Pauline grades Hunt as a preseason Round 4 prospect. "Hunt is a prospect on the rise and a player I really like," the expert wrote. "He’s sort of a poor man’s Donovan McNabb; an athletic passer that also makes plays carrying the ball. What I like about Hunt is the patience he displays in the pocket. Even if there’s an opportunity to take off up the field, Hunt will stay behind the line of scrimmage or move around the pocket in search of an open wide out. I like his upside and feel he has a definite future in the NFL." Hunt told the media earlier this summer that he expects Syracuse to win 10 games in 2014. We think he must work on staying patient downfield more often, as opposed to settling for shorter connections.

Hunt will take over for Drew Allen, who opened the season as the school's starter. Allen had thrown six interceptions and two touchdowns in three games. Comparatively, Hunt threw three touchdowns and no interceptions while completing 17 of 22 attempts. This will be the sophomore's first career start.
