Syracuse falls to No. 1 Clemson, 37-27

Syracuse lost in wire-to-wire fashion yet again on Saturday, this time falling 37-27 to Clemson at the Carrier Dome.

 

After falling behind 14-0 in the game’s final minutes, Syracuse actually outscored Clemson for the remainder of the game. That was thanks in large part to the play of walk-on quarterback Zack Mahoney, who started in the place of freshman quarterback Eric Dungey. But in the end, it wasn’t quite enough for the Orange (3-7, 1-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) to upset the Tigers (10-0, 7-0).

Syracuse was thoroughly dominated in Louisville on Saturday, falling 41-17 to the Cardinals at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

With the loss, Syracuse falls to 3-6 overall and 1-4 in Atlantic Coast Conference play, while Louisville improves to 5-4 overall and 3-2 in the ACC. The Orange held a lead early before being outscored 34-7 in the game’s final three quarters. And adding insult to injury in the loss, SU quarterback Eric Dungey suffered an apparent head injury and was forced to leave the game.
