SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse has its starting quarterback, and so far no budding controversy at the position.

Oklahoma transfer Drew Allen got the nod over sophomore Terrel Hunt and played the entire game against Penn State in the season opener Saturday.

Although Allen didn't have the best of performances in a 23-17 loss at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey - he threw two interceptions and was just 16 for 37 for 189 yards - his coach liked a lot of what he saw.

Shafer says he made his quarterback decision about 10 days before the opener after Allen had a good scrimmage during the Orange's visit to Fort Drum.

The Orange cause against Penn State was hurt by five dropped passes and nine missed tackles.
