Meanwhile, the ACC handed out their player of the week accolades and Syracuse punter/makeshift quarterback Riley Dixon split the Specialist of the Week honor for his work in SU's 27-26 (2OT) win over Villanova.
Dixon, who also serves as the Orange holder, threw what proved to be the game-winning touchdown pass to Kendall Moore in the second overtime of SU's 27-26 victory against Villanova. On fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line, Syracuse faked a field goal. Dixon rolled left and threw the first TD pass of his career to give the Orange a 27-20 advantage. The Orange defense rose up on the Wildcats' second OT possession, denying Villanova's potential game-winning, two-point conversion. In addition to the touchdown, Dixon punted five times for 217 yards (43.4 avg.) with a long of 51 yards. He placed two of his kicks inside the 20.
