SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- After an 18-year hiatus, the once-fruitful Penn State-Syracuse rivalry is back. Unfortunately, it's unlikely to rival any of the better games in the history of the series. Here's a look back at the once-annual game and how it ended abruptly in the early 90s.

Also, as reported, defensive linemen Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma did not travel with the team to Syracuse. Tight end Andrew Quarless, however, did make the trip as I suspected yesterday. Back with more from the game later today.
