  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
