Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey had a career day on Saturday afternoon. The Orangemen starter lit up the scoreboard against Boston College in a performance that both the player or the program won’t soon forget in a day where a new record for passing yardage at Syracuse was nearly set.
After their upset of top 25 ranked Virginia Tech last week, Dungey and his team built on their performance with another impressive win in the ACC today. Quarterback play obviously led the way as Dungey had one of the best days in the history of Syracuse football against the Boston College defense.
Dungey threw for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the 28-20 road win over the Eagles. Accurate 32-of-38 passing on the day allowed for what was a very special day for the Syracuse quarterback, who now has the second most passing yards in a single game for the program after his performance.
Not to be contained to just the air, Dungey also had a decent day with his legs in the win. The 434 yard passing day coupled with a solid 54 yards on 17 carries, who did a little bit of everything to lift his team to a big win in the conference. These numbers would also quickly make you forget about the small blemish of two turnovers from the quarterback.
Dungey’s heroics also allowed Syracuse to accomplish a feat they hadn’t achieved since 2013 with a second straight win in the ACC. The win now has Syracuse at 4-4 on the year and after two straight ACC victories, you can’t help but think that Dungey might just be able to guide the Orange to a bowl game berth this season after eight games played.
