Looking to take some momentum into halftime against superstar running back Leonard Fournette and the No. 8 LSU Tigers, Syracuse attempted a fake 48-yard field goal with :38 remaining in second quarter, trailing 7-3.
The attempt worked, as punter Riley Dixon took a pitch from the holder and hurdled an LSU defender for the first down. After the play, Dixon was a little too pumped up, as his celebratory fist pump hit the back of Tigers safety Jamal Adams, who was looking for a flag on the play but didn't get one.
Dixon's dash extended Syracuse's drive, but it did not lead to any more points as Orange field-goal kicker Cole Murphy bounced a 31-yard attempt off of the right upright to go into the locker room trailing 7-3 at the break.
