In the end it took a record-breaking performance from Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey for the Orange to record their first victory of the season on the road since 2010.
Dungey accounted for 384 yards of total offense and all 55 Syracuse points were scored with him on the field in a victory at Western Michigan.
The 200 rushing yards he posted are school and Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) records for a single game by a quarterback and earned the senior from Oregon the Uplifting Athletes Rare Performance of the Week.
Dungey completed only seven of his 17 attempts, but those seven completions went for 184 yards (26.3 yards per completion) with a pair of touchdowns.
Western Michigan had no answer for Dungey running the ball, either. His 15 carries went for that record breaking 200 yards for a stellar average of 13.3 yards per carry with one touchdown.
