Syracuse would score early and often on their way to a 62-10 win over Wagner in their home opener.

On the first series of the game for Wagner, Syracuse freshman Andre Cisco picked off a third down pass, setting the Orange up for their first score.

Two minutes later, Eric Dungey found Sean Riley on a 16-yard scoring strike to give SU a 7-0 lead.

The next Wagner series, Cisco would come up with another interception.

Syracuse would strike just 40 seconds later, as Dontae Strickland scored one of his two rushing touchdowns.

With just 38 seconds left in the first quarter, Eric Dungey hooked up with freshman Taj Harris for his first career touchdown.

Syracuse would score 21 points in the first, and 24 more in the second.

Highlighting the second quarter outburst, was a block punt returned for a touchdown by Trill Williams.

Eric Dungey finished the day 23-32 for 218 yards and 5 passing touchdowns.

Dungey is just the third quarterback in school history to throw for five TDs.

SU racked up 456 yards of total offense in the win over the Seahawks.

Dino Babers added this on the Orange’s performance after the game:

“This is probably our most complete game that we have played here.  From an offense, defense and special teams point of view.   They just caught us on the wrong time.  It was high tide and we were rocking and rolling out there.  It was a very very fine effort.  I am very proud of the young men.  Now, we are getting ready to start our ACC conference run.”
