A pair of third-quarter touchdowns has helped Syracuse University take a 21-14 advantage over the University of Connecticut in a Big East Conference game that has finished three quarters. A seven-yard touchdown run by senior wide receiver Dorian Graham capped a seven-play, 76-yard drive that helped SU gain the seven-point margin with 2:42 to go in the third.
The march answered a nine-play, 60-yard touchdown drive by UConn, which ended when freshman running back Lyle McCombs bulled his way into the end zone from three yards out. McCombs rushed for 40 yards on the march.
On the half's opening possession, SU used a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive to take a 14-7 lead. Senior tight end Nick Prove finished the drive by catching a six-yard TD pass from Nassib.
UConn will begin the fourth quarter inside SU's 20-yard line.
