Jerome Smith rushed for 144 yards and a touchdown and Prince-Tyson Gulley carried it 15 times for 98 yards and a pair of scores for Syracuse (5-5, 4-2 Big East), which scored on three straight possessions in the second quarter to jump out to a big lead.

Teddy Bridgewater went 36-of-49 for 424 yards and three touchdowns for Louisville (9-1, 4-1), which will have to wait to secure its first 10-win season since 2006. The Cardinals dropped into second place in the Big East behind Rutgers.

The game was tied at 10-10 heading into the second quarter when the Orange began to turn it on. Nassib hit Alec Lemon with touchdown passes of 13 and 37 yards before Gulley broke free for a 55-yard scoring burst to turn it into a 31-10 advantage with 2:13 left in the half.

Smith broke for a 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Nassib’s 3-yard pass to Lewellyn Coker made it 45-19 with 11:14 left in the contest. Lemon finished with nine catches for 176 yards.
