Syracuse and LSU players on the sideline.

LSU has the lead against Syracuse in upstate New York, but the Orange certainly are giving the Tigers a game. SU punter Riley Dixon is one major reason why.

Late in the second quarter, Dixon hurdled an LSU defender after a fake punt on fourth down, then accidentally punched a Tigers player celebrating. He wasn't flagged, since it wasn't deliberate.

Unfortunately for Syracuse, Cole Murphy missed a 31-yard field goal just before halftime. It's 7-3 Tigers.
