SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Punter Riley Dixon threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Kendall Moore on a fake field goal in the second overtime in Syracuse's 27-26 victory over Villanova on Friday night.

Villanova's John Robertson connected with tailback Gary Underwood for a 9-yard touchdown pass on the next possession to bring the Wildcats within one. Villanova coach Andy Talley went for the victory with a 2-point conversion try, and defensive end Robert Welch stopped Robertson at the 4.

Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt was ejected for punching Villanova linebacker Dillon Lucas.

Villanova's Chris Gough kicked a 25-yard field goal to tie it at 17 with 7:14 left in the fourth quarter, then missed a 25-yarder with 12 seconds left in regulation.
