Analysis:Jeremiah Kobena scored his two touchdowns in the second half. The first TD came on a 50-yard bomb in which the Northwestern defender fell down. He received extra playing time as Alec Lemon sat out with a leg injury. The sophomore only had one reception as a freshman. He'll likely return to special teams duty against USC if Lemon is able to return.
News:Jeremiah Kobena could start in place of Alec Lemon in the opener against Northwestern, according to the Post-Standard.
Analysis:Jeremiah Kobena had one reception in 2011 as a freshman, but could easily equal his production in the opener. He should get an opportunity to show what he can do when not on special teams, even if Lemon does play.
News: With wide receiver Marcus Sales still suspended due to his legal issues, Syracuse needs players to step up alongside senior Van Chew in the passing game. One of the options is Dorian Graham, but while he's one of the faster players on the team Graham is still battling to show consistency.
Analysis: Graham's a tough receiver but the hands can go from time to time. The same issue's been present for freshman Jeremiah Kobena while redshirt freshman Jarrod West has had a good fall camp in that regard.
