The ‘Canes win their 33rd straight game, the current longest streak in Division I-A, and also proved doubters wrong after they had struggled against Florida State, West Virginia, Rutgers and Pittsburgh.
Ken Dorsey led the attack with two touchdowns are Willis McGahee had two long runs as Miami improved to 11-0, 6-0 in the Big East.
Should Miami beat Virginia Tech next week, they will finish first in the Bowl Championship Series standings and will play No. 2 Ohio State for the National Title, Jan. 3 in Tempe Ariz.
Miami struck early and often taking a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter and didn't look back. McGahee busted through the Syracuse defense for a 61 yard jaunt to give him 20 touchdowns for the season and 1,737 all-purpose yards – both school records.
As for the Orangemen, they suffered their first losing season since 1986. Already 20-point underdogs coming in, they couldn't match Miami's offense, losing to the ‘Canes by a combined 85-0 in their last two meetings.
The Miami offense and defense didn't give Syracuse a shot in the game, Miami defensive end Jerome McDouble said.
