The Syracuse Orange notched their first win of the 2013 season beating the Stony Brook Seawolves 27-13 at the Carrier Dome.
The margin of victory wasn’t as wide as the Orange may have preferred against an FCS opponent, but it erases the zero in the win column after earlier losses to Northwestern and No. 2 USC. The Seawolves (2-1) came into the game ranked No. 16 in the FCS coaches’ poll.
Newcomer Ashton Broyld scored a touchdown on a 22-yard run and Ryan Nassib had another strong outing, throwing for 336 yards and touchdowns to Prince-Tyson Gulley (62 yards), Jarrod West (12 yards) and Marcus Sales (19 yards).
Running back Miguel Maysonet led the way for Stony Brook with 146 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Kevin Norrell put the Seawolves on the scoreboard first with a 63-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Kyle Essington.
The Orange take to the road for the first time this season, traveling to Minnesota to take on the Golden Gophers (3-0) Sept. 22.
