SU closes deficit before halftime, but fails to answer Fighting Irish touchdowns on back-to-back drives in the third quarter

The Syracuse Orange football team was an extra point away from tying the score against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on its first possession Saturday at MetLife Stadium.

After an Irish touchdown on the first play of the game, SU quarterback Eric Dungey capped off an eight play, 75-yard drive with a three-yard touchdown run. But, the Orange’s extra point attempt was blocked by Notre Dame and returned for an Irish two-point conversion.
