WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Eric Dungey rushed for 119 yards and a touchdown, Jarveon Howard ran for two scores and No. 22 Syracuse beat Wake Forest 41-24 on Saturday.

Dungey — whose average of 294.1 total yards per game ranks second in the ACC — was 23 of 35 for 157 yards and also ran for a 26-yard score to help the Orange (7-2, 4-2, No. 19 CFP) win their first game as a Top 25 team since the Dwight Freeney days in 2001.

Moe Neal added an 8-yard score, Chris Elmore had a 5-yard TD run and Andre Szmyt kicked two field goals for Syracuse, which earned its first conference road victory in more than two years.

Sam Hartman was 21 of 37 for 275 yards for the Demon Deacons (4-5, 1-4) with two touchdown passes. His 8-yarder to Greg Dortch pulled them to 35-24 with 3:38 left in the third quarter.

But after Wake Forest forced a stop, Hartman fumbled at his own 34 and Syracuse turned that takeaway into Szmyt’s 28-yard field goal that put Orange up by 14 with 11:55 left.

Cade Carney had a 2-yard touchdown run and Nick Sciba kicked a 22-yard field goal to give Wake Forest an early 10-0 lead.

THE TAKEAWAY

Syracuse: Dungey and one of the ACC’s highest-scoring offenses always get the attention, but the Orange defense stepped up in this one. Syracuse, which entered 11th in the ACC in total defense and allows 432 total yards per game, held one of the league’s most productive offenses in check, forcing three turnovers that led to 10 points and matching a season best with six sacks.

Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons have yet to show they can beat a good team. The three FBS teams they’ve defeated — Tulane, Rice and Louisville — entered the weekend with a combined record of 6-19 — and they fell to 0-3 against Top 25 opponents, losing all three at home by at least 17 points apiece.

UP NEXT

Syracuse: hosts Louisville on Friday night.

Wake Forest: faces an even quicker turnaround with a Thursday night game at North Carolina State.
