Syra­cuse soars in home fi­nale

Dungey, Neal have big games vs. Louisville to go un­beaten at Dome

Albany Times Union - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Moe Neal rushed for a ca­reerbest 159 yards and two touch­downs, quar­ter­back Eric Dungey ran for two more scores and passed for an­other, and No. 13 Syra­cuse took ad­van­tage of five Louisville mis­cues to rout the Car­di­nals 54-23 on Fri­day night.

The Or­ange (8-2, 5-2 ACC, No. 13 CFP) scored 27 points off five er­rors for Louisville (2-8, 0-7 ACC), rushed for 292 yards and ac­cu­mu­lated 518 yards of to­tal of­fense. Syra­cuse fin­ished the sea­son un­beaten in six games in the Car­rier Dome for the fourth time since the build­ing opened in 1980.

The Car­di­nals were pe­nal­ized 17 times for 125 yards, and Syra­cuse picked off two Louisville passes. Louisville also lost two fum­bles and their quar­ter­backs, un­der pres­sure most of the game, were sacked five times.

The win sets up a show­down for the Or­ange next Satur­day against No. 3 Notre Dame at Yan­kee Sta­dium.

Syra­cuse has scored 50 or more points in five games this sea­son and tal­lied 30 points in the sec­ond quar­ter alone to put the game out of reach.
