A one-yard touchdown run by quarterback Ryan Nassib and a 24-yard field goal by Ross Krautman has helped the Syracuse Orange take a 10-7 lead over the Cincinnati Bearcats in a Big East Conference football game that has reached the conclusion of the first quarter.
Krautman's field goal came with 1:45 to go and capped the scoring in a blunder-filled 15 minutes of action. Cincinnati ended the quarter with two turnovers, the first was a muffed punt that led to Nassib's touchdown while the other was an interception by quarterback Munchie Legaux that led to Krautman's field goal.
The Orange trailed 7-0 early on after kick returner Jeremiah Kobena fumbled the ball on the game's opening kick off that was recovered by Cincinnati at the Orange 28-yard line. Five plays later, running back George Winn rushed for five yards to help give the Bearcats the lead.
The Bearcats will begin the second quarter with the ball at the SU 38-yard line.
