Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey did little wrong in an upset victory last week against Clemson. But Saturday at Miami, he barely did anything right in the first half.
The Hurricanes held Dungey to just 7 of 22 passing and picked off 4 of his passes in the first two quarters. It felt like after every Syracuse possession, a different Hurricanes defender was wearing that Hurricanes turnover chain.
Takeaways have been extremely important to Miami’s 5-0 start this season. The Hurricanes now have a plus-8 turnover differential halfway through Week 8, and nine different players have forced a takeaway.
And yet, Syracuse remains within striking distance, as Miami leads by only 10 at halftime. Still, it’s hard to imagine Dungey isn’t going to be a bit rattled at the beginning of the third quarter.
