Smith is the main reason why Syracuse is top-30 nationally in rushing offense.
The rumbling junior tailback is a load to bring down, running with equal parts speed and power. Syracuse is averaging nearly 204 yards on the ground per game and Smith accounts for 78 of those yards.
Against his best opponent to date, Smith ran for 125 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries against Clemson earlier this season.
The Seminoles will have to be focused on limiting Smith and the rushing attack — and therefore forcing the Orange to try beat them in the passing game against perhaps the nation’s top secondary.
“Physical, hard [and] tough. Downhill. They bring it now, him and Prince Tyson-Gulley is extremely good,” Fisher said. “He ran extremely well against Clemson and everybody they played. They pound it in there and they stay true to what they do and they play great defense and great team football.”
