SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -Former Duke point guard Greg Paulus is 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.
Coach Doug Marrone announced the decision. Senior Cam Dantley, last year's starter, and two underclassmen were also in the running to start.
Syracuse will announce Tuesday 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.
The Orange open the season Sept. 5 against Minnesota in the Carrier Dome.
