Down 10-0 early, the Orange put their trust in the run and the run proved trustworthy. Syracuse ran the ball 47 times for a total of 258 yards. Jerome Smith achieved 96 yards and Prince-Tyson Gulley attained 83. Adonis Ameen-Moore rushed for 57 yards, surpassing his entire season total of 51 yards coming into this match-up.
Three of Syracuse's four offensive touchdowns came on the ground as the Orange remained above .500.
Smith and teammate, wide receiver Alec Lemon, surpass 1,000 yards in a season for the first time in their careers, Smith on the ground and Lemon on the receiving end.
Already bowl eligible coming into the game, Syracuse improves to 7-5, leaving the Big East Conference with a victory, taking down Temple, 38-20.
