KEEPING IT GOING: Syracuse rolls to 7th win at Wake Forest (full coverage)

Eric Dungey, as he had so often on Saturday, scanned the field from the pocket, made a decision, planted a foot and took off down the field.

He snaked easily past the line of scrimmage and into a pocket of space in the middle of the field. With every other player engaged, a safety stepped up, with a chance to save a touchdown, but a block materialized as Dungey rumbled forward.

He slipped around the would-be tackler and onto the black field turf of the end zone.

Dungey’s touchdown put Syracuse ahead by 18 in a game it could never quite put away. After starting slowly and climbing out hole, SU built a lead that constantly ebbed. But against an overmatched Wake Forest (4-5, 1-4 Atlantic Coast), No. 19 Syracuse (7-2, 4-2) overcame a slow start and set the pace offensively, winning 41-24 at BB&T Field.
