Former Duke PG Paulus Named Starting QB for Syracuse

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Former Duke point guard Greg Paulus is now
the starting quarterback at Syracuse.

He won the job after transferring and getting an NCAA waiver to play football as a graduate student at the Newhouse School of Public Communications.

Paulus was a Parade All-American as a record-setting quarterback in high school in Syracuse. Senior Cam Dantley, last year's starter, and two underclassmen were also in the running to start. Coach Doug Marrone announced the decision Monday.

The Orange open the season Sept. 5 against Minnesota in the Carrier Dome.

Syracuse is set to announce Tuesday that it will play three home games at the new Meadowlands stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The
first will be against Southern California in 2012 and then two against Notre Dame in 2014 and 2016.
