Cuse Goes to 4-0 With Last Minute Win

For the first time since 2018 Syracuse football is 4-0.

Behind a career-night from Andre Szmyt and his 5-for-5 field goals, including the game-winner from 31 yards with just 74 seconds left on the clock, Syracuse out-lasted visiting Virginia 22-20 in a white-knuckle finish to go to 2-0 in the ACC.

Szmyt is the first Orange to hit five field goals since Don McAulay against Kent State in 1983.

Garrett Shrader hit 22 of his 33 passes for 277 yards while scoring with his legs to open the game. Sean Tucker led the Orange with 60 yards while passing Ernie Davis for 12th all-time in Syracuse’s career rushing list.

The Orange defense stepped up on the final two Cavalier plays of the night as Anwar Sparrow and Eric Coley broke up back-to-back passes.

Unbeaten Syracuse returns to the JMA Wireless Dome next Saturday to face Wagner at 5 p.m.
