After breaking the Flames' all-time record for passing touchdowns, senior quarterback Buckshot Calvert is ready to rewrite more pages of the Flames football record book. Entering Saturday's season opener against No. 22 Syracuse, Calvert is closing in on the school's all-time records for passing yards, total offense and total touchdowns.
Calvert is on this year's preseason Johnny Unitas Award watch list. He faces a Syracuse defense on Saturday that led the nation in turnovers last year. Kickoff at Williams Stadium is set for 6 p.m.
