Video: Notre Dame, Syracuse score 5 touchdowns in five minutes


Notre Dame is off to a disappointing 1-3 start this season despite their offense’s ability to score. Within the first five minutes in their game against the Syracuse Orangemen, 35 points had been accounted for.

The flurry opened with the first play of the game when DeShone Kizer tossed a 79-yard touchdown to Equanimeous St. Brown.

Syracuse responded to the quick strike by going on quick, efficient, 8 play, 75 yard drive that lasted 2:05. The PAT was blocked and returned by Cole Luke to give the Irish a field goal lead.

Kizer then orchestrated a three play drive that covered 74 yards, highlighted by another 67 yard strike to Equanimeous St. Brown.

The fireworks continued when Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungy connected with Amba Etta-Tawo on a 72 yard touchdown bomb.

The ensuing kickoff was returned 93 yards for C.J. Sanders to end the five minute madness; 23-13 in favor of the Irish.

Since the opening, Syracuse is outscoring Notre Dame 14-10 and going in to the half trailing by 6. The Orange missed on a field goal attempt as time on the half expired.
