UPSET ALERT: Syracuse Blows Out Undefeated Louisville

The Cuse needed a win.

It's all over at the Dome. Syracuse has beaten Louisville, 45-26, dropping the Cardinals from the ranks of the unbeaten. Syracuse moves to 4-2 in the Big East and 5-5 overall. Louisville falls to 4-1 in the Big East and 9-1 overall.

Despite the loss, Louisville still controls its fate and can win the Big East title by winning out. The Cardinals play UConn next week, and Rutgers in their final game.

--------------------

Syracuse now leads Louisville, 45-19 with 11 minutes to go. It's been a dominating performance overall for the Orange, who appear to be on their way back to a .500 mark and a 5-5 record.

Second Half Update: Syracuse has just scored again and now leads 38-13 with 10 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. There is a ton of time left, but its tough to see Louisville coming back in this one - its defense has just been awful.

--------------------

The Carrier Dome faithful are getting quite the treat so far today. Syracuse, 4-5 overall, leads Louisville, 9-0 overall, 31-13 at the half.

Prince Tyson-Gulley has rushed for two scores, and Ryan Nassib has connected with Alec Lemon for two more.

The second half is about to get underway. Can the Orange hold on?
