DeShone Kizer finished with 471 yards passing, which is the third-highest single-game total in school history and the most ever by a Notre Dame QB in a win. The teams combined for 1,144 yards of offense. It was far from pretty, but Notre Dame's 50-33 victory over Syracuse was its first win over a Power-5 team since last Nov. 21 against Boston College, and the Irish will take it as they head to NC State next week looking to get back to .500. The Orange will look to rebound under the lights at Wake Forest.
