  Syracuse quarterback Tommy DeVito announced Sunday night on social media that he's entering the transfer portal. In a post on Twitter, the redshirt junior wrote that he was grateful to the university and all the teammates he played with. Coach Dino Babers was not mentioned. "It's with a heavy heart that I am announcing that I will be entering the transfer portal," DeVito wrote. DeVito, a highly regarded recruit from Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey, succeeded Eric Dungey as the starter in 2019 and kept the job for two seasons, though he missed the final seven games of 2020 with a leg injury.

He started the first three games of this season but was replaced by Mississippi State transfer Garrett Shrader and has not played in the past four games. With the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Shrader at the helm, Syracuse (3-4) beat Liberty on a last-second field goal but has lost all three of its Atlantic Coast Conference games. Two were decided on the final play, one in overtime, and on Saturday the Orange fell to Clemson, 17-14, when kicker Andre Szmyt missed a 48-yard field goal in the final minute of regulation. DeVito accepted the backup role initially, hoping for another shot, but Shrader has elevated the offense with his running ability and Babers opted to keep him as the starter. - AP College Football

  Syracuse coach Dino Babers said Tommy DeVito's experience and knowledge of the offense gives him an edge over Garrett Shrader heading into fall practice next month. The two quarterbacks will compete for the starting job ahead of SU's season opener at Ohio on Sept. 4. Syracuse is scheduled to open training camp Aug. 6. "I think if you're talking about who knows the offense better, it's definitely DeVito," Babers told syracuse.com. "I think what we need to do is be fair and continue to let those guys grow. They both have a set of tools that's unique to each one, and then there's a combination where they both can do the exact same thing. "We're going to have to see how it settles, but I would say he has an advantage because he's been here longer." Who Babers selects as his starting quarterback will be a defining storyline in the head coach's sixth season. DeVito, who has started 15 games over the past two seasons, showcased his arm and accuracy behind an offensive line that finally gave him some protection this spring. No school has allowed more sacks than Syracuse over the last two seasons. - The Post-Standard

  Syracuse will return to practice in about a month, when a quarterback competition Dino Babers said could rub up against the Sept. 4 season opener at Ohio will start to take shape. Returning starter Tommy DeVito is vying to hold off Garrett Shrader, the transfer from Mississippi State who spent most of the spring semester catching up on the language of the Orange offense. It's a season-defining decision in a year in which Babers is facing pressure to win. There's rarely been such ambiguity at quarterback heading into a season under Babers. It last happened with Eric Dungey and DeVito back in 2018, when Babers let the question hang in the air deep into August, despite Dungey having three seasons of starting experience. This summer has a similar feeling. DeVito is now the fourth-year player who has started games in multiple seasons and is coming off a year cut short by injury. Shrader is trying to close ground on the incumbent.

DeVito showcased his arm and accuracy behind an offensive line that finally gave him some protection. Babers sized up his quarterback room during an in-house interview for season-ticket holders last month with radio voice Matt Park. The interview was recently made available to the public. It's a rare window into the head coach's appraisal on his quarterbacks. The team closed all practices in the spring and did not hold a spring game for fans. "I think that Garrett had a spring where he's got to learn the offense and he's got to get better at things," Babers said, "but he's gobbling that up daily and getting better and better, and his legs are something to be reckoned with. "Tommy had a really, really good spring throwing the football. Those guys at practice can see what he can do when he has time and his feet are quiet." - The Post-Standard

  Quarterback Tommy DeVito will return to Syracuse for the 2021 season, his father told syracuse.com Monday morning. "We want to finish what we started here because it feels like we never got started," DeVito's father, Tom, said. "Tommy's not going anywhere. Tommy's committed. He's staying." It quiets speculation DeVito will seek a transfer and leave the program with two years of eligibility remaining. DeVito has been the team's starting quarterback each of the past two seasons. He injured his ankle late in SU's 38-24 loss to Duke on Oct. 10 and missed the team's final seven games as SU finished 1-10. It did not win a game after DeVito's season-ending injury. - The Post-Standard

  Syracuse redshirt junior quarterback Tommy DeVito suffered an injury to his left leg in a home loss to Duke on Saturday, and coach Dino Babers said afterward the injury was "not good." "Based off some of the stuff I've heard, it's not good," Babers said. "We're all pulling for him and we wish him the best. But right now, it's not good." DeVito was sacked early in the fourth quarter and left the field with help from two staff members. He finished watching from the sideline with a boot on and resting on crutches. The redshirt junior has been pounded this season and last. The Orange have allowed 20 sacks in four games this year and last season gave up 50. - AP College Football

  Tommy DeVito threw for two scores, Sean Tucker ran for two others, and Syracuse broke out of its offensive doldrums to defeat Georgia Tech 37-20 Saturday for its first win of the season. The game, which was delayed more than 30 minutes while Syracuse players were retested for COVID-19, was the first in the refurbished Carrier Dome. Renovations included a new roof, lighting, air conditioning and a scoreboard. The Orange (1-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored 17 points off Georgia Tech (1-2, 1-1 ACC) turnovers.

DeVito was 13 of 24 for 192 yards. Tucker, a freshman, had 111 yards on 22 carries and touchdown runs of 38 and four yards. Nykiem Johnson had four receptions for 84 yards, including a 43-yard touchdown, while Taj Harris had three catches for 64 yards, including a 46-yard pass play. Jeff Sims completed 13 of 28 passes for 174 yards and one touchdown for the Yellow Jackets but had four interceptions at the hands of an opportunistic defense. Jahmyr Gibbs, a freshman playing in just his second game for Tech, had 105 yards, the first 100-yard game of his brief career. Dontae Smith had a career-high 75 yards rushing. - Syracuse/AP College Football

  The Orange opened the season ranked 22nd after going 10-3 and finishing ranked 15th last year. Syracuse (3-3) has now lost its three Atlantic Coast Conference games by a combined score of 120-36 and a bowl game is not a sure thing. - AP College Football

  Syracuse enters its bye week holding its collective breath on the status of starting quarterback Tommy DeVito and waiting for its offense to start playing at the speed coach Dino Babers expects. DeVito passed for four touchdowns to four different receivers, the Syracuse defense held Holy Cross to 18 yards rushing and the Orange (3-2) defeated the Crusaders (1-3), a member of the Football Championship Subdivision, 41-3 Saturday. But DeVito, who was 19 of 31 for 269 yards, left the game in the fourth quarter with an apparent injury. Things were well in hand for Syracuse, but Babers, who said DeVito gave himself a "thumbs up" after the win, didn't second-guess himself for leaving DeVito in the game.

"He had the first team offensive line in front of him. He's going to be out there a lot in those situations the next three years so we don't see it as a dangerous situation," he said. Babers was effusive in his praise of the defense, but not as much for his unit on the other side of the ball. "I thought our defense was fantastic," Babers said. "Holding a team to no touchdowns in college football is a big deal." As for the offense? "This is year one with our new group. Then we'll get to year two, then year three, and then it won't look like there's paint drying out there because right now it looks slow to me. We'll get it right." Getting it right means eliminating turnovers. The Orange coughed it over three times in the fourth quarter. - Syracuse/AP College Football

  Syracuse coach Dino Babers was pleased his team's offense had come out of its shell, but in a game that saw both teams combine for more than 1,100 yards and 85 points, it was the defense that helped seal a 52-33 win for the Orange. Western Michigan (2-2) had rallied from a 21-0 deficit to narrow the margin to 38-33 with a little more than 10 minutes remaining and had a fourth-and-1 from its own 42. Momentum was on the Broncos' side and the Carrier Dome knew it. But Syracuse defensive tackle Kenneth Ruff and safety Evan Foster stopped Davon Tucker about a foot short of the first down. On the subsequent drive, tight end Aaron Hackett caught his second touchdown pass of the game from Tommy DeVito and the Orange (2-2) could exhale. "We treat fourth-down stops like a turnover," Babers said.

"That was a really big deal. I thought the one stop was unbelievable where they originally gave them the first down (on third down). For us to come back and stop them on that series was a really big part of the game." "We have to be able to convert a fourth-and-short," said Western Michigan coach Tim Lester, who served as Syracuse offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2013-2015. DeVito passed for a career-high four touchdowns and ran for one score as Syracuse broke a modest two-game losing streak. "I'm a throw-first guy but definitely can run if I have to," said DeVito, who broke off a career-high 60-yard run. "I thought it was cool that he started the game and finished the game with the same number of interceptions (zero)," Babers said. Hackett had a career day with six receptions. - Syracuse/AP College Football
