  Andre Szmyt knocked in five field goals, including the 31-yard game-winner with just over a minute left, and Syracuse held off Virginia's second-half comeback to beat the Cavaliers 22-20 on Friday night. Syracuse led 16-0 at halftime, but Virginia recorded three second-half touchdowns to take a 20-19 lead with six minutes remaining in the game. The Orange (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their first four for the first time since 2018 despite committing their first four turnovers of the season. Brennan Armstrong threw for 138 yards and a 4-yard touchdown to Lavel Davis Jr. with 5:51 remaining for Virginia. Syracuse responded with a 62-yard drive to retake the lead on Szmyt's final field goal. Virginia's final drive resulted in a turnover on downs. The matchup reunited two of Syacuse's first-year assistants, Robert Anae and Jason Beck, with their old squad.

Anae and Beck coached at Virginia (2-2, 0-1 ACC) for the past five seasons before joining Dino Babers' staff this offseason. Syracuse started the game strong, with Trebor Pena returning the opening kickoff 57 yards into Virginia territory, and the Orange punching it in five plays later with Garrett Shrader's 17-yard rushing touchdown. Virginia kicker Brendan Farrell missed first-quarter field goal attempts from 51 and 49 yards, respectively. The second miss came after the Cavaliers had taken over at the Orange's 37-yard line following a Sean Tucker fumble. For the second straight week, Tucker was unable to find many openings, finishing with 60 yards rushing on 21 attempts. UVA got back in the game early in the second half when Armstrong pitched to Thompson at the 1-yard line for a touchdown. The Cavaliers, trailing 16-6, wanted to attempt a 2-point conversion, but an illegal substitution penalty forced them to kick the extra point instead. - Syracuse/AP College Football

  2022 PRESEASON LOU GROZA AWARD WATCH LIST: Andre Szmyt - Syracuse, Class: Senior - Hometown: Vernon Hills, Illinois,...The 2018 Lou Groza Award winner as a freshman, Szmyt is now wrapping up a career that stands as one of the game's best. His 65 career field goals are third among active kickers, but with a career accuracy rate of 82.3% that is better than anyone in the country with more than 40 makes. - Lou Groza Award

  Syracuse place-kicker Andre Szmyt is returning in 2022 for his final year of eligibility. Szmyt made the announcement Saturday in a post on Twitter. "It's too hard to walk away with a year of eligibility left and that feeling like there's unfinished business with this group. I'm looking to walk off like the year I walked on," Szmyt wrote. Szmyt had a stellar first season in 2018, leading the NCAA in field goals (30 of 34) and scoring the third-most points ever by a kicker (151). He won the Lou Groza Award as the nation's top kicker and earned unanimous All-America honors. In four seasons, Szymt has converted 65 of 79 field goals and his 1.6 field goals per game is the top mark in school history. Szmyt originally intended to forgo the extra season granted by the NCAA. His decision comes just two days after Syracuse hired Bob Ligashesky as special teams coordinator. - AP College Football

  Andre Szmyt kicked the game-winning 35-yard field goal with no time on the clock as Syracuse used a late turnover to defeat Liberty 24-21 on Friday night. The Syracuse defense came up with the only turnover of the game just when the Orange needed it most. After forcing Liberty quarterback Malik Willis into fumbling the ball with just under four minutes remaining, Szmyt converted the turnover into the game-winning field goal seven plays later. Szmyt's kick was the Orange's first game-winning field in a game's final minute since 2015 and handed the Flames (3-1) their first loss this season.

The Syracuse defense couldn't stop Willis for most of the game. Willis had shredded Syracuse for 205 yards passing and three touchdowns. He had rallied the Flames from a 21-7 third-quarter deficit to knot the contest at 21-all less than a minute into the fourth quarter. After Liberty had stopped Syracuse for its third consecutive 3-and-out, the Flames looked primed to claim the victory after taking possession at their own 27-yard line with just over four minutes remaining. But Syracuse defenders Cody Roscoe and Marlowe Wax forced Willis to cough up the ball as he rolled out to pass and the Orange took over on the Flames' 30-yard line. Syracuse maneuvered the ball into position, eating up the clock as well as all of Liberty's timeouts. After Syracuse's Garrett Shrader gained 10 crucial yards on 3rd down quarterback keeper to get the ball to the 16-yard line, Orange coach Dino Babers let the clock tick down to 1 second before calling timeout and sending Szmyt onto the field. - Syracuse/AP College Football

  It's going to be a rough summer for Syracuse football in the preseason prognostication space. The team is coming off a one-win season. The magazines and national experts have Syracuse near or at the bottom of the ACC - again - with few players earning preseason recognition. Phil Steele's preseason all-ACC team features six Syracuse players, headlined by kicker Andre Szmyt, a first-team pick on special teams. That's the same number of selections SU had going into the 2018 season, when it won 10 games after being picked to finish last.

If Syracuse is going to repeat a similar turnaround this fall, it's going to come off the backs of players nobody thinks measures up to its conference brethren. Syracuse coach Dino Babers thinks the season hinges on the play of his linemen who aren't getting any conference recognition. The sixth-year coach said retaining five senior linemen on the offensive and defensive lines was huge after the NCAA granted unusual eligibility relief amid the coronavirus pandemic. "It's the key to the season to give us a chance," Babers said last month during an in-house interview for donors. "We needed the big guys to stay around." - The Post-Standard

  Looking to become just the second repeat winner in history, Syracuse sophomore Andre Szmyt headlines the thirty-player Watch List for the 2019 Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award, as announced by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. Szmyt, just the third freshman to ever win the Groza, became the second kicker in FBS history to lead all players in points per game. If he defends his title, he would join former Florida State kicker Sebastian Janikowski (1998 & 1999) as the only players to win multiple Grozas.

He is joined on the Watch List by two former finalists in Wyoming senior Cooper Rothe and Utah State senior Dominik Eberle, as well as ten other past semifinalists. Among the players on the Watch List are all 11 returning FBS kickers who made at least 19 field goals last season: Szmyt (30), Missouri senior Tucker McCann (24), NC State sophomore Christopher Dunn (23), Eberle (22), Ole Miss junior Luke Logan (22), Texas A&M sophomore Seth Small (20), Georgia Southern senior Tyler Bass (19), Georgia senior Rodrigo Blankenship (19), Arkansas senior Connor Limpert (19), Wake Forest sophomore Nick Sciba (19), and East Carolina senior Jake Verity (19). - Lou Groza Award
