Syracuse edges Pitt in the Dome, 27-24 (full coverage)

Quarterback Eric Dungey threw for two touchdowns and ran for one score and Syracuse (3-3, 1-1) secured a Homecoming Weekend triumph against Pittsbugh (2-4, 0-2) in the Carrier Dome.

Dungey engineered an Orange rally from a 10-3, first-half deficit. He connected with Devin C. Butler on a 32-yard touchdown pass with 34 seconds left in the second period and then helped Syracuse go ahead for good with a 10-yard scamper to paydirt in the third quarter. Dungey then teamed with Steve Ishmael on a 35-yard scoring strike in the fourth quarter on what proved to be the game-winning points.

Pittsburgh had one last opportunity after stopping Syracuse on the Panther five with 52 seconds left. A sack by Ryan Guthrie all but ended the chance. More
