For Syracuse fans, the Orange's 31-17 win over No. 17 Virginia Tech held plenty of watchable moments, as Cuse notched its first win against a ranked opponent since 2012.

But perhaps the most highlight-worthy moment happened after the final whistle, when Syracuse coach Dino Babers addressed his squad in the locker room. 

With enough inspiring speeches like that, there may be no stopping the Orange.
