'Noles edge Syracuse for first home win of 2017

'Noles edge Syracuse for first home win of 2017”

The Seminoles capitalized on the mistake, as James Blackman found Nyqwan Murray in stride for a 51-yard touchdown strike.

Akers first started to pad his stats early in the second quarter when he juked his way through the middle of the field and took off down the sideline with Syracuse defenders chasing after him for a 54-yard touchdown to give Florida State a 14-0 advantage. Ishmael finished with 12 grabs for a game-high 143 yards and a touchdown.

It is the first time since November 20, 1976, that Florida State has three offensive touchdowns of 50 yards or more in a game. Considering he started the game averaging 70.9 yards per game, that run is even more impressive, and people started comparing him to Dalvin Cook - the school's all-time best rusher who was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 2017.

The Orange had the last score before half, with Dungey throwing his second touchdown pass of the today, this one 34 yards to Steve Ishmael. On fourth-and-3 from the FSU 4, Dungey was pressured by James and threw an incomplete pass to the end zone. Cole Murphy hit one from 42 yards and Florida State kicker Ricky Aguayo was able to just barely get his 49-yard field goal inside the uprights. The senior had 12 catches for 107 yards, and now has 217 catches for his career. The real issue was the run defense.

The Seminoles (3-5, 3-4) narrowly held on thanks in part to two 50-plus yard scoring scampers from freshman running back Cam Akers, sending the Orange back to Central New York with a familiar taste in its mouth. Costly drops by Philips and running back Dontae Strickland also played into the team not scoring a second-half touchdown until a Dungey play-action keeper with 2:55 left in the fourth quarter.

Eric Dungey, despite leaving the game temporarily because of ankle injury, played well enough to put the Orange in a position to win. The Orange (4-5, 2-3 ACC) had a chance to tie late in the first half after D.J. Matthews fumbled a punt inside the FSU 15-yard-line, but Syracuse turned the ball over on downs. On that touchdown run, he broke the career touchdown rushing record for a quarterback. Both had 12 catches and more than 100 receiving yards. The Orange have won all three meetings that have taken place at the Carrier Dome.
