Ryan Nassib hit Jarrod West for the go-ahead touchdown, Ashton Broyld scored on a 22-yard run and Syracuse beat Stony Brook 28-17 Saturday to snap a seven-game losing streak.
Stony Brook (2-1), which competes in the Football Championship Subdivision, entered the game 0-3 against college football's top tier, the Football Bowl Subdivision. All three losses came in the previous two seasons, but the Seawolves were in this one until the fourth quarter.
Syracuse (1-2) has won its last 29 games against current FCS members, a streak that dates to a 14-13 loss to Holy Cross in October 1958.
The Seawolves entered the game ranked No. 16 in the FCS coaches poll and led the division in total offense. They acquitted themselves well, outgaining Syracuse in the first half behind the powerful running of Miguel Maysonet, who finished with 158 yards rushing, before the Orange defense dug in.
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s time to deliver the Fizz 5 of Syracuse’s win over Stony Brook, 28-17. SU won a game for the first time in almost 11 months. It was way too close for comfort the entire afternoon, but parts of Marrone’s new up-tempo offense clicked beautifully and Syracuse held on to secure the victory.
The whole afternoon felt like we were watching The Dougie in his football...
Jarrod West and the Syracuse passing game has been extremely productive during the young season. As the Orange prepare for Stony Brook and attempt to get their first win, West spoke with CuseNation.com.
SU fans were nervous the entire day, and this game was a battle all afternoon. It shouldn’t have been. Stony Brook was a lesser opponent, but again the Orange found a way to keep an opponent in the game because of mistakes. But for the first time since the West Virginia game of last October, Syracuse gets a victory.
Shameful tackling by Jermi Wilkes on Miguel Maysonet’s ridiculous...
Syracuse held on against a game Stony Brook squad to get their first win of the season. Behind big plays from Prince Tyson-Gulley, Jarrod West, and Ashton Broyld, and a strong second half defensive effort, the Orange won 28-17.
