Syracuse’s TD came after both teams turned the ball over inside Rutgers territory.
On the Orange’s second possession of the game, Syracuse used a 33-yard reception by tight end Nick Provo to move into Scarlet Knight territory.
One play later, Rutgers Kordell Young fumbled the ball, which was scooped up by Syracuse’s Michael Holmes.
Six player later, Nassib found Bailey in the flat.
Each team gained minimal yardage on their next possessions and were forced to punt.
Rutgers is now driving and will start the second quarter at the Syracuse 38-yard line.
